Complainant Name:
Mr David Fletcher

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Shropshire Star

Mr David Fletcher of Ludlow complained that an article reporting the inquest into his sonís tragic death was inaccurate. His address was Normandie Close, not Normandie Road; his son had been visiting his grandmother not his grandparents when he died and; his son was not sick and in distress before being rushed to hospital Ė rather he fell asleep and never woke again.

The matter was resolved when the newspaper published a correction of the relevant points, noting that the errors were due to it being provided with incorrect information.

Report: 72
