Complaint:

Mr Rory Hegarty, Deputy Director of Communications for the West London Mental Health NHS Trust, complained that a newspaper article inaccurately referred to a “cell” in Broadmoor. As Broadmoor is a hospital, it does not have “cells”.

Resolution:

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

“On Sunday July 6, we published a story in which we referred to a murderer called Daniel Gonzalez killing himself in his cell at Broadmoor. It has been pointed out that Broadmoor is a hospital and does not have ‘cells’. We would like to express our apologies for any hurt caused”.

Report: 78
