Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Chat


Mrs Janie Jenkins a close friend of Anita Ings family complained on their behalf that the story Steve Ings told the magazine about the murder of Anita, and their son Gavin, was an inaccurate representation of the true circumstances.


The complaint was resolved when the magazine agreed to publish a letter from the complainant and the family of Anita Ings with the following wording: We wish to express how strongly my family and our close friend Janie feel about a story published in Chat magazine issue 11 dated 23 March 2006 headlined Shattered. We would like to point out that the story you printed was one person's view of a terrible tragedy and is not the view shared by we, Anita Ings family, or our close friend Janie. We wish to be allowed to grieve in private & put closure on this terrible event.
