Complainant Name:
Elaine Deering

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Metro

Complaint:

Elaine Deering complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper's website contained an article (published two years prior to her contacting the PCC) inaccurately stated that her brother, a decorated war hero who had died serving in Afghanistan, had been engaged to be married. The complainant and her family did not accept that this was the case.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper deleted and arranged for its archives to be annotated with the complainant's concerns.
