Complainant Name:
Clifford Luton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:

Clifford Luton complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an inaccuracy in an obituary of Murray Sayle.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the Commission negotiated the publication of the following correction:

The obituary of Murray Sayle (News Review, September 26), which was reprinted from The Daily Telegraph, stated erroneously that he had chartered a plane to find Francis Chichester, the round-the-world yachtsman, off Cape Horn. In fact, Mr Sayle was a passenger on an aircraft chartered for the BBC by Clifford Luton, one of its correspondents, who had correctly estimated Chichester's position. We apologise for this error.
