Croydon Council complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had misrepresented a cut to the council's funding of its Family Justice Centre. The newspaper incorrectly claimed that a central Government grant would make up the shortfall in the funding to the centre; in fact, the cut in council funding had been made only after the Government grant had been received and therefore there had been no shortfall in funding.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered the council the opportunity to submit a letter for publication in which it could set out its position.
