Complainant Name:
Adam Wood

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Yorkshire Evening Post

Complaint:

Adam Wood complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had misreported the nature of the drug M-Cat in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

A recent report in the Yorkshire Evening Post referred to the so-called party drug M-Cat as a "former plant food". This should have read "formerly sold advertised as a plant food". We are happy to clear up any confusion.
