Complainant Name:
Dr Kevin Murray

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star

Complaint:

Dr Kevin Murray, the Clinical Director of Broadmoor hospital, complained that the newspaper had inaccurately suggested that there was a serious feud between patients Peter Sutcliffe and Robert Napper. He made clear that this was not the case, and that the hospital had never been compelled to separate them.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which had based the article on a source close to one of the patients published the following correction:

Further to our article of 20th December, we have been asked by Broadmoor hospital to point out that it has never been compelled to separate Robert Napper and Peter Sutcliffe and the two remain on the same ward together. We are happy to make this clear.

Report: 78
