Complainant Name:
Mr Euan McIlvride

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Herald (Glasgow)


Mr Euan McIlvride complained to the Press Complaints Commission about three articles which were, in his view, inaccurate and misleading in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The articles reported on court proceedings, which had resulted in the complainant's conviction for a number of offences. Following an appeal, however, these convictions had been quashed.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the online articles.
