Complainant Name:
Elaine Deering

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Metro


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.


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