Complainant Name:
Mr John Leach

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun


Mr John Leach of Cottingham complained that an article which reported the death of his daughter, Chloe, contained inaccuracies.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology:

In our article of January 10 we reported Chloe Leach, 21 of Cottingham, East Yorkshire, suffered from a heart defect called QT syndrome which led to her death. We would like to make clear that, while her inquest did point to the existence of this condition, it was not proven as the cause of her death. Ms Leach had also not been drinking vodka and Red Bull in the club when she died. We regret the distress caused by our report.

Report: 78
