The Argus newspaper in Brighton has had to republish a correction more prominently after Brighton and Hove City Council complained to the Press Complaints Commission.
The council complained that a correction for a page two story appeared on page 20. The complaint was resolved when the Argus agree to republish the correction on page two.
The correction said: “In yesterday’s article ‘MP’s anger at squatters’ we stated there were 950 empty council properties in Brighton and Hove. In fact this was the total number of vacant properties in the city. The number of those owned by Brighton and Hove City Council currently stands at 140. A council spokesman said the authority is carrying out considerable refurbishment work on those properties. We apologise for any confusion.”
