Complainant Name:
Mr David Hartless

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express

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: "In our January 3 article 'Child killer roams free' we reported that David and Fiona Hartless had offered to allow David McGreavy to stay with them on his release from prison. We apologise to Mr & Mrs Hartless, who would like us to make clear they have not made any such offer."

Report: 72
