Complainant Name:
Ms Aarti Tandon

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Chronicle (Newcastle upon Tyne)


Ms Aarti Tandon complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which inaccurately described her as the adopted daughter of another woman, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


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

In a report in the Evening Chronicle on April 28, we wrongly described Aarti Tandon as the adopted daughter Jan Crook, of Jack Sprats cafe in Heaton, Newcastle. We would like to take this opportunity to apologise for the embarrassment and any distress caused.
