Complainant Name:
Mr W F Wareham

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Solihull Observer


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


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.
