Complainant Name:
Mr Phil Pratt

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Crawley Observer

Complaint:
Mr Phil Pratt of West Sussex complained that an inquest report was inaccurately headlined ‘Depressed woman died after fit’. As the executor for the estate of the deceased, and guardian to her daughter, he made clear that she had not been depressed at the time of her death or in the period preceding it.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper – following a suggestion from the Commission – published an apology to the deceased’s family.

Report: 71
