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


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.
