Complainant Name:
Full Fact

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Full Fact complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccurate information in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code.

Resolution:

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

We reported on October 18 that "more than 40 per cent" of all knife crime involves juveniles.

In fact, this was an estimate by local police for the London borough of Enfield. The most recent Ministry of Justice figures show the proportion is just under 20 per cent in England and Wales.
