Complainant Name:
Ellen Yianni

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ellen Yianni complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article regarding the protests at Dale Farm which quoted a woman as she was overheard by a reporter. The complainant identified herself as the woman in question and argued that the quote must have been wrongly attributed as she never said the words reported.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper deleted the online version of the article and annotated its records to ensure that the quote would not be repeated in future coverage.
