Complainant Name:
Ms Rachel Hughes

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Pontypridd & LLantrisant Observer

Complaint:
Ms Rachel Hughes of Llantrisant complained that the article inaccurately contended that a horse found dead at the side of the road was a victim of a hit and run accident. In fact, she indicated that the driver of the car involved in the incident had immediately reported it to the police, who decided that the driver had not been at fault.

Resolution:
The newspaper explained that it had published the report in good faith. However, it published a clarification making clear that the driver of the car had reported the incident, and that the police had indicated that the driver had not been at fault.

Report: 72
