Ms Lucy McGee, Director of Communications for the West London Mental Health Trust, complained that an article about the redevelopment of Broadmoor Hospital contained inaccuracies.


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

On January 10 we reported that Broadmoor secure hospital was to be redeveloped as a luxury hotel complex with money from the sale funding a new hospital for patients. We are happy to make clear that, while a hotel is one of the options under consideration, no sale has yet been agreed nor plans finalised and we regret any misunderstanding. We would also like to emphasise that neither Ian Brady nor Steve Wright is currently, nor ever has been, a Broadmoor patient.
