Publication: The People


A woman from Essex complained that an article which claimed that Jade Goodys home was for sale including interior photographs was inaccurate and misleading. In fact, it was the complainants neighbouring property which was for sale.


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

On April 19 we published a story that Jade Goodys house was for sale. However, the internal pictures used in the article were of a neighbouring property that is for sale and not Jades. The aerial picture used shows the complete housing development of 3 properties, the middle terraced property belonging to Jade. The property actually for sale which we incorrectly described as being Jades is a much larger and enhanced property within the same development. We apologise for this error.

Report: 79
