Complainant Name:
Ms Judy Gibbons

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Judy Gibbons complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which was, in her view, inaccurate and misleading in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant is the chair of the Island Farm Donkey Sanctuary, and the article included a picture of one of her organisation's donkeys. The complainant believed the caption which accompanied the photograph (‘A donkey sanctuary was left a total of 16 million in 2011'), suggested that her organisation had benefited from large donations.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online caption.
