Complainant Name:
Mr Alan Seymour

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Alan Seymour complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published misleading information in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

Two commentary articles about psychic Sally Morgan in the Daily Mail in September stated that it is "illegal in this country to claim to be a medium". It has been pointed out to us that mediums are in fact legal in this country, although like other businesses they are subject to consumer protection legislation.
