Mr Jem Aldridge

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Hunts Post

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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