Complainant Name:
Mr Sean Cosgrove of St Neots on behalf of Ms Emma Ratcliffe

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror

Mr Sean Cosgrove of St Neots complained on behalf, and with the signed authorisation, of Ms Emma Ratcliffe that an article about another woman of the same name misled readers because it stated that the woman was from St Neots. In fact, the woman featured in the piece was from Sudbury.

The newspaper marked its database library with a warning that Emma Ratcliffe of Sudbury should not be confused with Emma Ratcliffe of St Neots. Its legal adviser also wrote to the complainant to express regret that Ms Ratcliffe was upset by the publication of the article.

Report: 68
