Complainant Name:
Ms Lisa Chamberlain and Mr Michael Pedace

Clauses Noted: 1, 2

Publication: The News (Portsmouth)

Complaint:

Ms Lisa Chamberlain and Mr Michael Pedace complained that the newspaper had inaccurately stated that their conjoined twins had been born with two heads but only one body, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy), and that the subsequent article correcting this error had not been prominent enough, in breach of Clause 2 (Opportunity to reply).

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to work with the couple to produce a further article on the matter that would be satisfactory to both sides.

Report: 80
