Complainant Name:
Mr Darren Lawrenson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Echo


Mr Darren Lawrenson complained that an article about the tragic death of his daughter, Ellie Lawrenson, was inaccurate and misleading.


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

On September 12, we reported that Darren Lawrenson, whose five-year-old daughter, Ellie, was attacked and killed by her uncle's pitbull dog at the home of her gran, Jackie Simpson, would never forgive Ms Simpson for Ellie's tragic death. Mr Lawrenson has asked us to point out that the article stemmed from an interview we conducted with him in February. In addition although we have a reporters note of the remark he denies saying that the dog was a loaded gun and Jackie pulled the trigger.

Report: 76
