Complainant Name:
Mr Angus Moat

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Angus Moat complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about a second post-mortem into the death of his brother, Raoul Moat, had quoted him inaccurately stating "I'm sure there was a cover-up here". The complainant said that he did not make such a comment.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved after the newspaper - which had sought to demonstrate that the quotation had come from an interview with the complainant by its journalist - removed the quotation from its online article and marked its cuttings to prevent republication of it.
