Complainant Name:
Steve and Michelle Clark

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Press & Journal (Aberdeen)


Steve and Michelle Clark complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had published inaccurate information relating to proposals for the development of a wind farm.


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

Wind Turbines

On May 20, we published an artist's impression of three wind turbines alongside a story about a proposed development by Steve and Michelle Clark at Conabo, Monymusk. Mr and Mrs Clark have asked us to clarify that the turbines in the montage were placed incorrectly on land not actually owned by them. We apologise for the error and any issues that this has caused as a result.
