Complainant Name:
Dr Julie-Ann Little

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Belfast News Letter

Complaint:

Dr Julie-Anne Little complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which was accompanied by a photograph of a garage (owned by the complainant) and incorrectly identified it as the location of a double murder that took place in 1991.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following clarification:

Cliff Terrace, Castlerock

On March 4, we carried a picture of a garage at 10, Cliff Terrace, Castlerock along with a caption which suggested that the bodies of Trevor Buchanan and Lesley Howell had been found there in 1991. We now understand that this was not the case and that the incident did in fact take place at another property. The News Letter is happy to clarify the issue and we regret the error.
