Complainant Name:
Jane Hughes

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent on Sunday

Complaint:

Jane Hughes complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a restaurant review that contained a factual inaccuracy in breach Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The article contained the erroneous assertion that a food critic's feedback had once elicited an aggressive response from a chef at The River Café.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper accepted that the presence of the critic was not linked to the chef's behaviour and promptly amended the online article to remove the incorrect reference.
