Complainant Name:
Ms Sarah Keddy

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Macclesfield Express

Complaint:
Ms Sarah Keddy of Cheshire complained that an article had inaccurately reported that her former husband had committed suicide as a result of her remarriage. She made clear that she had not remarried and had no plans to do so and, furthermore, no-one could be in a position to know why her former husband had killed himself.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper accepted that it had published a rash and ill-informed story and wrote a letter of apology to the complainant and her son.

Report: 68
