Ms Charlene Stephenson, Communications Manager for West London Mental Health NHS Trust complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article had contained inaccurate and inappropriate language when it described Broadmoor Hospital as a "jail".


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended its online article to refer to Broadmoor as a secure hospital, and published the following correction:

Following the article "Fury at mad killer's bid for release" we have been asked to point out that Broadmoor is a secure hospital not a jail".
