Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Bill Holland of the Warwickshire Police complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the article contained several inaccuracies in relation to the death of a couple following a suspected arson attack. The complainant stated that, contrary to the suggestion in the article, there had not been any reports of anti-social behaviour in the area for at least a year. He did not consider that there was any evidence to support the claim made in the article that the elderly couple had "challenged yobs".


The matter was resolved when the newspaper offered the complainant the opportunity to speak directly to the Assistant Editor of the newspaper about the matter.
