Complainant Name:
Andrew Slocombe

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: South Wales Argus

Complaint:

Mr Andrew Slocombe of Newport complained that a front page article reporting the claims made by his ex-wife were not clearly distinguished as the allegations which she had made in court.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification: Mr A Slocombe. Further to a report published on July 19th 2006 headlined “£30,000 Theft: Mum Jailed” in which we reported the sentencing of Emma Slocombe, we would like to make clear that the headlines and text of the article reflected the claims that were made in court. We apologise for any misunderstanding in the way this story was reported.

Report: 73
