Complainant Name:
Ms Louisa Harry Thomas

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Herald (Glasgow)

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

In The Herald of August 15, we described Chris and Louisa Harry Thomas as owners of Kingscliff Sporting Lodge, which had gone into administration. The business went into receivership while under the ownership of Tony Loftus, who bought it two-and-a-half weeks before the receiver was appointed. We apologise for the error.

Report: 80
