Complainant Name:
Ms Eileen Dempsey

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: The Sun

Ms Eileen Dempsey of Glasgow complained that a report of her son's death was insensitive and inaccurately suggested that the Coroner's verdict gave, as cause of death, a reaction to cocaine. In fact, the Coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death by multiple injuries.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a correction.

Report: 66
