Complainant Name:
Mrs Pat Fisher

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:

Mrs Pat Fisher complained on behalf of her son Lawson that the headline to an article reporting his experience of the Zeebrugge ferry disaster had inaccurately claimed that her son had said that he had kicked others out of his way. As the text of the article had clarified, Lawson Fisher had in fact indicated that he was still haunted by having to kick off those who had grabbed his legs.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the editor wrote to Lawson Fisher, apologising for the upset caused by the headline.

Report: 75
