Complainant Name:
Mr Ian Bolton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Mr Ian Bolton complained that the newspaper had published an article about his children that was inaccurate, as it referred to a situation involving them that had been resolved several months before.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article and photograph from its internal archives and website, made an ex-gratia payment to the complainant's children and published the following apology:

"In an article on 2 November, it was reported that the sons of Ann Connolly were attending different schools in Hertfordshire because of the school allocation process. In fact, the issue had been resolved in April and the comments attributed to Dr Connolly were made before this time. We apologise for the misunderstanding."

Report: 80
