Complainant Name:
Mr Nic Bullough

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Southern Daily Echo

Complaint:

Mr Nic Bullough complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the article, which had reported on court proceedings against his partner, had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant expressed the view that the article had failed to make clear that the events reported were unsubstantiated, and represented only one side of the story. The complainant considered this failure on the part of the newspaper had prevented him in a violent light.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the article.
