Complainant Name:
Reverend Grant Ashton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Reverend Grant Ashton of Tidworth complained that a headline had inaccurately claimed that army chaplains in Afghanistan wanted the right to carry weapons. In fact, as the article later made clear, the individual who favoured the carrying of arms was a Royal Navy chaplain.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the headline to its online article and annotated its records for future reference.

Report: 76
