Complainant Name:
Ms Lisa Mowe

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The People

Complaint:

Ms Lisa Mowe, Deputy News and PR Manager for Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service, complained that an article inaccurately claimed that Fire Chief Paul Stephens had sent his son (who was a firemen) into a building, where he subsequently died. She made clear that it was not Mr Stephens’ words that prompted the men to enter the building.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from its website, annotated its records to reflect the substance of the complaint and requested that third party databases carrying the story did the same.

Report: 77
