Cameron Butland

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Westmorland Gazette


Cameron Butland, Chair of Governors at Grasmere CE VA School, complained that the newspaper had published an article about the school, its management and teachers' pay that contained a number of factual errors in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code. The complainant said the school had agreed to run a follow-up piece after being contacted directly but nothing had appeared in print.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper carried the promised follow-up article which clarified the points under complaint and contained an apology for the delay in its publication.
