Complainant Name:
Mrs Mindy Gibbons-Klein

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Guardian-series East London and West Essex

Complaint:

Mrs Mindy Gibbons-Klein of London complained that a review of The Snowman had inaccurately contended that her son Bradley had played The Boy in the performance attended by the reviewer. This was of particular concern in light of the unflattering nature of the review. Moreover, the text beneath the photograph had inaccurately stated that the boy pictured was Bradley.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from its website and sent a personal letter of apology to Bradley and Mr and Mrs Gibbons-Klein, making clear that Bradley had been wrongly identified in the article.

Report: 73
