Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World


A man complained that an article had inaccurately claimed that he had abandoned his children. In fact, he explained that he had stayed at home to look after them when their mother had left them.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: In our story of April 23 we reported that the father of Rachel Clarke, whose mother had been murdered, had walked out on his children. We are happy to make clear that this was not the case.

Report: 73
