Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Belfast Telegraph

Complaint:

A woman from Northern Ireland complained that an article concerning a child ice-skater had incorrectly attributed to her several prestigious achievements - including being in training for the next winter Olympics and being trained by Yuri Bureyko - that were actually the achievements of a different child, Jenna McCorkell.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to remove the article from their website and annotate their internal databases with the points of the complaint, and also to send a private letter of apology to Miss McCorkell for any offence caused to her.

Report: 78
