Mr Michael Godfrey complained that an article recording his conviction for assaulting a nurse and an ambulance man in a hospital was inaccurate in stating that he had kicked the nurse.

The Managing Editor of the newspaper wrote directly to the complainant apologising for the error but making clear that he considered the attack on health staff to be reprehensible. He agreed to amend the newspapers database to clarify the position.
