Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror

Complaint:

Ms Nuala O'Brien of the West London Mental Health NHS Trust complained that an article was inaccurate in that it claimed that Peter Sutcliffe had been 'lined up' for a move from Broadmoor Hospital to a medium-secure unit, following a meeting with his clinical team.

Resolution:

The newspaper said that the information for the story had been provided by a confidential source. However, in the light of the complainant's assurances it accepted that it had been wrongly informed by its source. It agreed to remove the article from its website and provide a warning on its electronic database that the piece had been subject to a complaint.

Report: 73
