Complainant Name:
Mrs Marlene Howes

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror


Mrs Marlene Howes complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice that the newspaper's article contained misleading information about a court case against her.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the deletion of the online article. The newspaper did not accept a breach of the code, but removed the article from its website as a goodwill gesture after the complainant was cleared of the offence.
