Complainant Name:
Mr Ian Donald

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scottish Sun


Mr Ian Donald of Stirling complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which reported that he had been suspended from his position at Glenochil Prison over claims he used the CCTV system to ‘ogle a female colleague's bum'.


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

On October 11, we reported that prison officer, Ian Donald, had been suspended over claims he used a jail's CCTV system to ogle a female colleague's bum. Mr Donald was actually accused of using his mobile phone to take pictures from the CCTV ‘which wrongly appeared to show a male and female colleague in a compromising position of a sexual nature'. He is then said to have ‘misrepresented the situation as such'.
