Complainant Name:
Mr Jonathan Landers

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Darlington & Stockton Times

Complaint:

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.
