Complainant Name:
Ms Corrine Mitchell

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Record

Ms Corrine Mitchell of Dalkeith complained that an article was inaccurate in its claim that she had rowed with her son while visiting him at Polmont Young Offender’s Institution. She subsequently complained – on behalf and with the signed authorisation of her son, Luke Mitchell – that the latter had not put on weight since entering Polmont.

The newspaper publicly reiterated the complainant’s denial of the allegation that she had rowed with her son. It stood by its story but noted Ms Mitchell’s contention that she was not at Polmont on the day it had referred to. The statement in the newspaper also included a denial of the claim that Luke Mitchell had put on weight.

Report: 72
