Complainant Name:
Mr Jonathan Landers

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Darlington & Stockton Times

Complaint:

Jonathan Landers complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had reported that he had fraudulently taken £12k from his mother's estate when, in fact, the offence had taken place before his mother's death and the money had been promptly repaid. He considered that Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice had been breached.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online article accordingly.
