Complainant Name:
Mr Neville de Sousa

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Northampton Chronicle & Echo

Complaint:

Mr Neville de Sousa complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had reprinted an inaccuracy that it knew to be incorrect and for which it had apologised for printing on a previous occasion.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following further apology:

A report in Tuesday's Chronicle & Echo covered the crown court hearing of Steven Jewell, aged 43, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend Nicola de Sousa. It incorrectly stated she was a mother-of-one, which was information told to one of our reporters by an acquaintance at the time of her death in February. We have been asked to clarify by members of her direct family that this is not the case and apologise for any upset this has caused.
