Mr George Sorial, on behalf of the Trump Organization, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately stated that a petition had sought to put a Donald Trump golf resort "out of bounds". The complainant also considered that it had been inaccurate to refer to those who had signed the petition as "locals" as it was not possible to establish that they were from the local area.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article's headline to read:

City Diary: Donald Trump protestors petition the Scottish Parliament over golf resort

The following footnote was also appended:

In the interests of clarity the headline on this item replaces the one originally posted, which said: "Donald Trump protestors amass to put golf resort plans out of bounds."
