Complainant Name:
Mrs H McConaghy

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Liverpool Echo


Mrs H McConaghy of St Helens complained that the headline to an article about the death of her son Neil had inaccurately set out that he had been killed while trying to take copper from a roof. In fact, Neil had not been on a roof, but in a derelict property, when he was killed.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper explained that the online headline had always reflected the accurate position, and annotated its records with the points of the complaint. The newspaper also undertook to report on the inquest into Mr McConaghys death when it took place.

Report: 77
