Complainant Name:
Mr David Johnson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr David Johnson complained on behalf of his son Haydn that a comment piece about the tragic death of his friend, fellow student Rachel Ward, in Val díIsere contained inaccuracies. Specifically, the complainant made clear that his son had not received an answerphone message from Miss Ward saying that she was lost on the night of her death. In addition, the complainant disagreed with the columnistís view that his son had failed in his duty of care, had ďabandonedĒ Miss Ward and acted in an unchivalrous manner.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper made a note of the complainantís points on its internal records for future reference in addition to removing the article from its website.

Report: 79
