Andy Crane, Radio Manchester, 23 November 2012: Finding by the Editorial Complaints Unit

Complaint

A contributor to the programme complained that the description of a site which Manchester Airport wants to develop as “brown-field” was inaccurate, and called for a broadcast correction.

 

Outcome

The statement, made in a programme earlier that day by a spokesman for the Airport and repeated by Andy Crane in the introduction to the complainant’s interview and in one of his questions, was inaccurate.  In the view of the ECU, however, the detailed description of the site which the complainant had then given sufficed to correct any misleading impression.

Resolved
