Complainant Name:
Mr Justin Grant

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Justin Grant complaint to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that an article about the sugar content of alcoholic drinks had inaccurately stated the sugar content of real ale.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the removal of the online article and the publication of the following correction:

An article about the hidden sugar content of alcoholic drinks on 5 February said that there were up to nine teaspoons of sugar in a pint of real ale. The Campaign for Real Ale has asked us to clarify that in fact it typically contains less than one teaspoonful of sugar.
