Complainant Name:
Ms Louisa Harry Thomas

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Press & Journal (Aberdeen)


Ms Louisa Harry Thomas of Gower complained that the newspaper had given the impression that the Kingscliff Sporting Lodge, Aberdeenshire, had gone into receivership whilst in the hands of her and her husband, when they had actually sold the business several weeks beforehand.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper agreed to publish a follow-up article which included the following passage:

Mrs Louisa Harry Thomas sold her shares and controlling interest to Mr Tony Loftus, of the Miller's, Midmar, Aberdeenshire, and then moved with her husband to Wales. However, when Kingscliff was placed into administration several weeks later, the sale had not yet been ratified and Mrs Harry Thomas was still listed as the sole director and a shareholder.
