Complainant Name:
Miss B N K Pillai

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Pinner Observer

Complaint:

Miss B N K Pillai complained that the newspaper had been inaccurate in reporting the circumstances of two incidents in which children had been injured by her dog.

Resolution:

The complaint was considered to be resolved as the newspaper had published a follow-up article detailing the complainantís account of the two incidents: that the first child had received an accidental scratch caused by the dogís playful behaviour; that the second child had been provoking the dog and had received only a single puncture wound from the dogís bite; and that, by the time of the second incident, her dog was elderly, ill and physically impaired.

Report: 78
