Complainant Name:
Mrs Maureen Craw

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Mrs Maureen Craw complained that an article, reporting the death of a soldier in Iraq, wrongly suggested that he was related to her deceased son and nephew, who were also pictured in the article. She was concerned that this would be repeated in the subsequent report of the funeral.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper apologised and ensured that the error was not repeated in the report of the funeral. It was willing to offer further action if requested by the complainant.

Report: 65
