Complainant Name:
Mr Martin Davis

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Times

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 newspaper spoke to the news agency which stood by the accuracy of its reporting and was willing to provide its reporter's notebook. Nonetheless, it removed Ms Davis' name from its online report and was happy to amend all database versions of the report to make clear that she did not know Ms Grogan personally. The complaint was resolved on this basis.

Report: 80
