Spread of information in a crowd is analysed in terms of directed percolation in two-dimensional spatial network. We investigate the case when the information transmitted can be incomplete or damaged. The results indicate that for small or moderate probability of errors, it is only the critical connectivity that varies with this probability, but the shape of the transmission velocity curve remains unchanged in a wide range of the probability. The shape of the boundary between those already informed and those yet uninformed becomes complex when the connectivity of agents is small.
