Complainant Name:
Mr Martin Davis

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The People


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.


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
