Complainant Name:
Debbie Vincent

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Debbie Vincent complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article about animal rights activism which contained a number of inaccuracies in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The newspaper responded substantively to the complaint and offered to amend the online article on certain points. The complaint was resolved on the basis of the changes made to the article and the publication of the following corrective footnote:

"An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Debbie Vincent was a former member of the ALF. The article has also been updated to make clear that the SHAC deny any involvement in the Newchurch guinea pig case."
