Richard Jones, Sales Manager for the TASER brand equipment in the UK, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper inaccurately reported that Civil Defence Supply is the supplier of TASER products to the police. The correct supplier is Tactical Safety Responses Limited and, as such, the complainant considered that the article was in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online article appropriately and appended the following corrective footnote:

In an earlier version of this article, Civil Defence Supply Limited were referred to as being a supplier of Tasers to the police. We are happy to clarify this is not the case.
