Katy Poynter

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Bucks Free Press


Katy Poynter complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a report of the inquest into her brother's death which contained inaccuracies. The complainant was also concerned that the coverage was insensitive as it emphasised details from life of the deceased which she considered irrelevant and included excessive information regarding how he had died.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper provided a private letter for the complainant containing an apology and an assurance about its handling of inquest reports.
