Complainant Name:
Mr and Mrs Vazquez

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Surrey Advertiser

Complaint:
Mr and Mrs Vazquez, the proprietors of The Watermeadows Hotel in Godalming, complained that an article reported inaccurately that a theft had occurred at their hotel.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a follow up piece making clear that the police, who had supplied the original information, now believed that the theft claim was bogus. It had transpired that the claimant had not stayed at the hotel on the night in question or at any time.

Report: 61
