Complainant Name:
Ms Carina Trimingham

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Metro

Complaint:

Ms Carina Trimingham complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article relating to her partner Chris Huhne's experience in prison which included a number of inaccuracies in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant said that there was no truth in the claims that: Mr Huhne had been summoned to breakfast over the Tannoy system; that he had been moved to a wing for vulnerable prisoners; that prisoners had asked him for money; or that other prisoners and officers had bullied him.

Resolution:

The newspaper said it had clearly presented the claims as being allegations. It had published a follow-up article reporting the complainant's denial of the claims.
