Complainant Name:
Mr Craig Whyte

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Daily Record

Complaint:

Mr Craig Whyte complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had published an article which inaccurately stated that a fan of Rangers Football Club had been thrown out of a supermarket after launching a "tirade of abuse" at him.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction and apology:

Following our article of December 27 2013 we would like to make clear that, contrary to our report, former Rangers owner Craig Whyte was not verbally abused while shopping in Tesco and nobody was thrown out of the store for doing so. We apologise for this error.
