Complainant Name:
Mrs Anita Iacovou

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sutton Guardian


Mrs Anita Iacovou complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had inaccurately reported the sum donated to a fund in memory of her late husband.


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

In our edition of August 22 we mistakenly reported that a fund set up in member of murdered Ladbrokes worker Andrew Iacovou had raised £170,000. The fund had raised £17,000 at that point, and currently stands at £21,960. We wish to apologise to Mr Iacovou's family for any distress caused by this error.
