Complainant Name:
Mr David H. and Mrs Susan M. Fundell

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

Mr David H. and Mrs Susan M. Fundell complained that an article, which referred to their family being discovered in the West Country, having apparently fled debts incurred through legal action, was inaccurate on a number of points. In particular, they made clear that they were visiting the area on holiday and were not in debt in the manner suggested by the article.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which had based its article on on-the-record and off-the-record police sources, published a clarification.

Report: 69
