Complainant Name:
Mr Chris Shyne

Clauses Noted: 1, 2, 5

Publication: Oldham Evening Chronicle


Mr Chris Shyne complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which he considered to have been inaccurate and intrusive in breach of Clauses 1 (Accuracy), Clause 2 (Opportunity to reply) and Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant said the article inaccurately implied that he was dead when, in fact, this was not the case.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of a letter from the complainant.
