Complainant Name:
Mr Gervase Duffield

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent


Mr Gervase Duffield complained that an obituary referred to him as the "late Gervase Duffield".


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper amended the online obituary and added the following statement:

In an earlier version of the above obituary we referred to the "late" Gervase Duffield. We are pleased to report that in fact he is not late - nor was he at the time of original publication. Update posted: 10 January 2012, following contact by Mr Duffield, who tells us he remains active in public life, both civil and ecclesiastical.
