Complainant Name:
Mr Maurice Avery

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Faversham Times

Complaint:

Mr Maurice Avery complained that the newspaper had published a caption to a photograph which spelled his name incorrectly (“Morris” rather than “Maurice”).

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper (before any contact from the PCC) published the following apology:

A report in the Faversham Times about the railway exhibition at the Fleur de Lis Heritage Centre (Visitors chuffed at rail exhibition) incorrectly referred to an exhibitor as Morris Avery. It should have read Maurice Avery. We are happy to set the record straight and apologise for any distress caused by the error. The exhibition at the Fleur de Lis in Preston Street is due to remain open until the end of the week.

Report: 78
