Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Belfast Telegraph


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.


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
