Complainant Name:
Mr Bill Holland

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

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".

Resolution:

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.
