Complainant Name:
Mr Darren Lawrenson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Express


Mr Darren Lawrenson of Warrington complained that an article was inaccurate when it stated that he was at a party at the time his daughter, Ellie Lawrenson, was tragically killed by her uncles dog on New Years Day.


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

We would like to make clear that Ms Lindsey Simpson and Mr Darren Lawrenson returned to pick up their daughter, Ellie Lawrenson, at 2am and 3.30am respectively on New Years Day when it was decided that she would stay with her grandmother. They were not, contrary to our article of 17 May, at a party at the time Ellie was killed by her uncle's dog.

Report: 75
