A man, representing a woman who had been injured whilst climbing in the Cairngorms, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccurate information relating to the incident and the injuries suffered in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated amendments to the online article and the publication of the following correction in print:

"We reported on January 26 that an ice climber was rescued after falling 160ft near Newtonmore and had broken her back in the accident. The climber did not fall but was held securely by a rope. She suffered serious injuries but did not break her back".
