Complainant Name:
Danny Weston

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph


Danny Weston complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that a British rowing team had reached the "North Pole" and the "magnetic North Pole" when, in fact, these locations were hundreds of miles from the spot they did reach: the location of the pole as it was mapped in 1996.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper arranged for the online article to be amended to include the following line: "It was later pointed out by observers that the group had in fact reached the 1996 location of the pole".
