Complainant Name:
Mrs A R Rozenbergs

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mirror

Complaint:

Mrs A R Rozenbergs of Barnstaple complained that the headline to a court report was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: ‘Further to our article “Fined for fatal leap” (19 March), we would like to make clear that, while Mrs A Rozenbergs admitted an offence under the Health and Safety at Work Act and was fined £10,000, she was not fined for the death of Mr Trent nor for the leap which led to his death. The Judge stated that “Health and Safety breaches were not the cause of Mr Trent’s suicide and, being discovered only as part of an investigation, were only incidental”’.

Report: 73
