Mr Paulo Reis, a Portuguese journalist, complained about an inaccurate headline, for an article about the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, containing the claim that a potential witness had repeatedly phoned police in Portugal. As the article itself made clear, the person concerned had been telephoning Spanish police.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the headline of the online version and corrected its internal records.

Report: 75
