Clauses Noted: 1
Publication: Daily Mirror
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; or that other prisoners and officers had bullied him.
The newspaper said it had quoted The Sun as the source of the claims and had gone to the Ministry of Justice to attempt to corroborate the allegations. Given the complainant said it was inaccurate, the newspaper agreed to remove the article from its website.
