Complainant Name:
Ms Jennifer Platt

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Take a Break

Complaint:

Ms Jennifer Platt of Ilkeston complained that an article about the death of Miss Kay Morton contained inaccuracies. In particular, the complainant was concerned that the article had claimed that Miss Morton - who was pictured in a wedding dress in the piece - had been married to William Granston when he killed her, which was not the case.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine published the following correction and apology:

An article headlined "Excuse for a killing" (10 September 2009) stated that Kay Morton and William Granston were married at the time Mr Granston killed her and was accompanied by a photograph of Miss Morton in a wedding dress. In fact, Mr Granston and Miss Morton were not married and we would like to apologise to Miss Morton's family for the distress caused by the error.

Report: 80
