Complainant Name:
Susan Weeks-Wade

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: York Press


Susan Wade-Weeks complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper was continuing to publish two historical articles on its website that wrongly attributed offensive Facebook comments to her in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


As the complaint was submitted more than two years after publication, the newspaper said it was unable to respond in detail to the concerns raised. However, as a gesture of goodwill it arranged for both online articles to be deleted and the complaint was resolved on that basis.
