Ms Gillian Lafferty

Clauses Noted: 1

Ms Gillian Lafferty, aunt of Niamh Lafferty, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that coverage of her niece's death in the newspapers contained inaccuracies and intruded into her family's grief.


The complaint was resolved when - after the Mail on Sunday had published an apology to the Lafferty family in regard to a separate complaint from a family member - the newspapers each wrote private letters of apology to the complainant and her family.
