The Sun corrects story which said Muslim train driver crashed because of Ramadan fast
by Dominic Ponsford
The Sun has corrected a story which claimed a Muslim train driver went through a red light and crashed because he had been fasting for 15 hours.
The story was headlined "Ramadan train driver in crash" and was published on 20 August. It followed a derailment at Paddington station the previous June.
The correction follows a complaint to press watchdog IPSO which was upheld (full adjudication here).
The correction said: "In a story 'Ramadan Train Driver in Crash' we implied that the Rail Accident Investigation Branch said the cause of the derailment at Paddington was that the driver had been fasting during Ramadan.
