Complainant Name:
Mrs Mary Tiffney

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Edinburgh Evening News

Mrs Mary Tiffney, of Edinburgh, complained that an article misleadingly implied that she and other members of her family were aware that her grandson planned to buy and drive a high-powered car in which his cousin and friend were subsequently killed when it was involved in a road accident.

The newspaper published a clarification, which stated that the complainant and her family had no idea that her grandson planned to buy the car involved in the tragedy.

Report: 54
