Mrs Anna Bruce-Hou

Clauses Noted: 1

Complaint:

Mrs Anna Bruce-Hou complained to the PCC that the newspaper had inaccurately referred to Antoni Imiela as a "serial killer" rather than a "serial rapist" in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following statement:

A previous version of this article erroneously referred to Mr Imiela as a 'serial killer'. This has been amended to read 'serial rapist'.
