Complainant Name:
Carol Hodgson

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: The Sun


Carol Hodgson complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccuracies about her late brother, Richard Cartwright.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper apologised for any unintentional distress caused to the complainant and her family, removed a reference to Mr Cartwright from one story online and amended another, placed a note in its internal files of the family's position, and offered an assurance that it would take every reasonable step not to repeat the disputed claims unless new details came to light.
