Complainant Name:
Mr Geoff White

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Saga Magazine

Complaint:

Mr Geoff White complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article, which he considered to have breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The article reported on the assistance received by the complainant from a local charity called Rotherfield St Martin. The complainant said it was not the case that he had received ‘help with household chores' or ‘finances'.

Resolution:

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

Mr Geoff White, who featured in our article on Rotherfield St Martin in the September issue, would like to point out that he did not receive financial advice from RSM volunteers, not help with household chores. We are happy to set the record straight.
