Complainant Name:
Mr David Hartless

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Birmingham Post

Complaint:

Mr David Hartless complained about an article that reported the preparation for release of David McGreavy, a convicted murderer. In particular, the article reported that McGreavy was to live with the complainant and his wife when he was released, a claim which the complainant denied.

Resolution:
The newspaper published a correction which read as follows: 'David and Fiona Hartless would like us to make clear that they have never asked David McGreavy to live with them at their house in Somerset as we stated on January 10. We apologise for any distress we may have caused them and the residents of Charlton Horethorne.'

Report: 72
