Complainant Name:
Mr Ian Kell

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Westmorland Gazette

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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

A report 17 July on the jailing in Essex of sex offender Daniel Holt gave his address as Laverock Hill, Kendal. The address was supplied by the court but we have been asked to point out that this was an address which was given to the court at an earlier hearing in December 2007 and was not Holt's address when he was convicted and sentenced this year. To our knowledge, Holt had no connection with any Kendal drama school.

Report: 80
