Complainant Name:
Mr Martin Davis

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

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 agreed to remove the paragraphs containing the comments from its online article, and gave an assurance that the remarks would not be republished.

Report: 80
