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.
