Complaint:

Mr Tom Murray complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccurate information regarding the ownership of his son's company in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following apology and correction:

In our article of 2 July "Bankruptcy...What Bankruptcy" we said that Graham Gilliespie part-owns Lomond & Trossachs Fuels, which he set up with Sir David Murray's son Andrew. This is incorrect. We are happy to make clear that the owners of Lomond & Trossachs Fuels Limited are Thomas Graham Gillespie and Andrew Graham Davidson Murray. Graham Gillespie and Sir David Murray are not connected to the company and we apologise to the owners for our error."
