Complaint:

Mr W F Wareham complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper incorrectly indentified his son as the victim of an attack.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper privately apologised to the family, removed the article from the website and published the following apology on-line and in the next edition of the newspaper:

The Observer would like to apologise for a mistake on page three of last week's paper in which we wrongly named Dean Brayson as the victim of a stabbing in Chelmsley Wood.

We would like to apologise to Mr Brayson's family for the upset this mistake has caused.
