Complainant Name:
Ms Andrea Fletcher

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Metro

Complaint:

Ms Andrea Fletcher complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The newspaper had published an article about scientific experiments being carried out on cats, and the complainant was concerned that the captions on the photographs which accompanied the article had not stated that they had been taken at a university in the US, and not in the UK.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated amendments to the captions on the photographs on the newspaper's website, to make clear that they had been taken at the University of Wisconsin.
