Complainant Name:
Mr Justin Grant

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
