Complainant Name:
Elaine Deering

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

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) which contained a number of errors. In particular, she was concerned that the piece stated, wrongly, that she had sold her deceased brother's war medals to fund a holiday cruise and reported that her brother was engaged before he died when the complainant and her family did not accept that this was the case.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the article to remove all reference the cruise and fiancée and arranged for its archives to be annotated with the complainant's concerns.
