Publication: The Echo (Basildon)

Complaint:

Kat Fisher of the Dale Farm Solidarity Group complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper's website featured an article which wrongly linked an individual who had been arrested in Limerick while in a state of inebriation to activities at the camp at Dale Farm, Essex.

Resolution:

The newspaper explained that the article was not one of its own, but originally appeared in a different publication and had been copied and pasted into the comments section of the website by a reader. The complaint was resolved when the newspaper arranged for the removal of the comment under complaint.
