Complainant Name:
Mr Gervase Duffield

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Independent

Complaint:

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

Resolution:

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.
