Complainant Name:
Mrs Carol Ann Shaw

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sentinel (Staffordshire)


Mrs Carol Ann Shaw complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article which gave the misleading impression that her sons' stepmother was their biological mother.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article and the publication of the following clarification:

An article of 24 May (2 minutes with Rebecca Kane of Shine on Raw) reported that Rebecca Kane was a mother of two boys. We have been asked to make clear that she is in fact their stepmother. We are happy to set the record straight.
