Complainant Name:
Mrs Pauline Dunn on behalf of her niece, Mrs Wendy Barlow

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Lancashire Telegraph

Complaint:
Mrs Pauline Dunn complained on behalf of her niece, Mrs Wendy Barlow, that an article had misleadingly pertained to be an exclusive interview with Mrs Barlow from prison – where she was serving a sentence for the manslaughter of Joshua Massey-Hodgkinson – containing her reaction to an official report into Joshua’s death. In fact, Mrs Barlow had not at that time read the report and the comments that were attributed to Mrs Barlow in the article actually came from another family member who was speculating on how she might have been feeling.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published an apology to Wendy Barlow and her family.

Report: 72
