Complainant Name:
Mrs E B Reed

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Shields Gazette


Mrs E B Reed of Wakefield complained that an article recalling the birth of her sister Marian Chapman in 1938 – the “world’s smallest baby”, born weighing only 10 ounces – contained a number of inaccuracies.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper – which marked its internal records with the complainant’s concerns and gave an assurance that any further stories in relation to her sister would be run by her before publication – published a follow-up article with the complainant’s approval.

Report: 75
