Complaint:

Ms Sarah Davies, on behalf of demolition contractor Coleman & Co, complained that the newspaper had published an article containing a number of inaccurate and misleading statements.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the Birmingham Mail published the following statement:

Following our article of May 30 2009 in which we stated that a family were left homeless when bungling council contractors accidentally destroyed their home, we can confirm that the Health and Safety Executive have concluded that demolition contractors Coleman & Co were not to blame for the accident. A director of Coleman & Co did apologise in person to the family for the inconvenience caused and we apologise to Coleman & Co for these errors.

and the Sunday Mercury published the following:

Following our article of May 31 2009 in which we stated that a family were left homeless when bungling council contractors accidentally destroyed their home, we can confirm that the Health and Safety Executive have concluded that demolition contractors Coleman & Co were not to blame for the accident. We apologise for the error to Coleman & Co.
