Complainant Name:
Mrs Margaret Grant

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail

Complaint:

Mrs Margaret Grant complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article reporting on the death of her son contained inaccuracies and was misleading.

Resolution:

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

LEE GRANT

An article headlined Murder Suspect Found Dead on 9 January 2011 described the murder of Lee Grant as gang-related and said he had a growing reputation for violence. We would like to make clear that Mr Grant had no previous convictions for violence and police do not believe his death was gang related. We apologise to his family for any distress caused.
