Mr Steve Wickenden

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Mr Steve Wickenden complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which misleadingly reported that he had paid 30,000 for a Back to the Future Delorean time machine, although he had not specified how much he had paid for the car.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept that there was a breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when it removed the online article as a gesture of goodwill.
