Complainant Name:
Mr Martin Davis

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The People

Complaint:

Mr Martin Davis complained on behalf of his daughter Chloe Davis that an article about the death of Holly Grogan had attributed a number of comments to her which she had not made. While Ms Davis had spoken to a news agency reporter at the time, she had made clear that she had not known the deceased personally and only made one comment about the tragedy.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper - which provided a copy of the news agency reporter's notes of the conversation - removed the paragraph which contained the comments from the online version of the article as a gesture of goodwill.

Report: 80
