Complainant Name:
Mr Joe Curry

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Herald (Glasgow)


Mr Joe Curry complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an inaccuracy in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant said that the newspaper's reference to Glasgow as Scotland's biggest airport was inaccurate.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction:

We referred in an article on July 10 to Glasgow being Scotland's biggest airport. Edinburgh Airport is, in fact, the biggest in Scotland.
