Publication: The Hunts Post


Mr Jem Aldridge, on behalf of Autogas Ltd, complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Code. The complainant was of the view that newspaper had published misleading information in associating a photograph taken of an Autogas liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) tank involved in a car accident, with the comments raised in the article. In particular Autogas considered that a reasonable person reading the article could be misled as to the health and safety compliance of the company.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the photograph from two online articles.
