Complainant Name:
Ms Margaret Deighan

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: East Kilbride News

Complaint:

Ms Margaret Deighan complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article had inaccurately reported that her son, Andrew Deighan, was currently on bail pending court proceedings against him. She was particularly concerned that the publication of this information put her at risk of vigilante attacks.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper published a correction making clear that the complainant's son was in fact in custody.
