Complainant Name:
Mrs Jacquie Mackie

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Westmorland Gazette


Mrs Jacquie Mackie complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article, which reported her daughter's death, inaccurately stated that her daughter had been in a relationship with the man charged with her murder. She considered that the newspaper had breached the terms of Clauses 1 (Accuracy) and 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper wrote privately to the complainant.
