Complainant Name:
Miss Angela Fitzgibbon

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Miss Angela Fitzgibbon complained to the Press Complaints Commission that she and her partner had learned of the death of her grandmother as a result of inquiries made by a reporter of her neighbours. Further, the resulting article had contained inaccuracies about her grandmother.

Resolution:

The newspaper expressed its condolences for the complainant's loss and apologised, on its own behalf and on behalf of the agency reporter involved, for having inadvertently caused upset and added to her distress at a difficult time. The newspaper also amended the article on its website in response to the complainant's concerns about two points of inaccuracy.
