Complainant Name:
Mr Berwyn Jay

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Berwyn Jay, former head of IT and press spokesman for Cardiff City FC, complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice about an article which claimed that he had been ‘sacked after admitting he had previously been paid by the News of the World for stories about the club.' The complainant denied having admitted to this, or that he had been sacked for this reason.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept any breach of the Editors' Code, the matter was resolved when, as a gesture of goodwill, it agreed to remove the reference from its article.
