Complainant Name:
Mr Ian Kell

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Echo (Southend)


Mr Ian Kell complained that the newspaper had inaccurately reported that an individual who had been convicted of sex offences lived in his road, Laverock Hill in Cumbria.


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

WE have been asked to point out that former Southend drama school boss Daniel Holt, who was jailed earlier this year for sex offences, was not living at Laverock Hill, Kendal, at the time of his sentencing at Basildon Crown Court.

This address was supplied by the court at a hearing in December 2007, but it was not his address when he was convicted and sentenced in July this year.

Report: 80
