Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Sport

Complaint:

Mr Rory Hegarty, the Deputy Director of Communications of West London Mental Health NHS Trust, complained that the newspaper had inaccurately described a patient at Broadmoor as “serving a life sentence” and quoted a “prison insider”.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

“Further to our article of 30th April ("It's murder being a Leeds fan"), we have been asked to make clear that Broadmoor is a high secure hospital, not a prison. Its patients are not serving sentences.”

Report: 75
