Complainant Name:
Mr Mark Furneaux

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Cornish Guardian

Complaint:

Mr Mark Furneaux of Bodmin complained that a report of a court case in which he was involved was inaccurate in its presentation of his former partner’s allegations of abuse.

Resolution:

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

“Regarding an article which appeared in the Cornish Guardian on May 7, 2008 with the headline ‘Victim of attack was hit with rolling pin’, we would like to clarify that during the court case, any claims of abuse made by the defence against the victim of the attack, Mr Mark Furneaux, were allegations and at no time were these allegations proven to be fact. We apologise to Mr Furneaux for any distress and embarrassment this may have caused."

Report: 77
