Complainant Name:
Jonathan Crass

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cambridge Tab


Jonathan Crass complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which contained a number of errors regarding plumbing problems experienced at St Edmund's College, Cambridge University in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy).


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online article and appended a corrective footnote in the following terms:

This article originally reported that broken pipes, not a faulty pump, caused the water outage; and that St Edmund's had previously left students without all water, rather than just hot water. Efforts have been made to acknowledge college's response to the incident. These points were corrected following a complaint from a member of college.
