Complainant Name:
Mr Michael Moss

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Michael Moss complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on victims of the Hillsborough tragedy which inaccurately implied that Mr Peter Burkett was the son of Mrs Ann Burkett.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article with the following footnote, and the newspaper marked its cuttings and databases and sent a personal letter of regret to the complainant:

An earlier version of this article reported that Mrs Ann Burkett was the mother of Mr Peter Burkett. We have been asked to make clear that Ann is in fact Peter's step-mother. We apologise for any confusion.
