Complainant Name:
Mrs Avril Holmes

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Ilkeston Advertiser


Mrs Avril Holmes complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on an inquest into the death of a baby which did not make clear that the baby's mother was in hospital at the time.


Prior to the PCC's involvement, the newspaper had published the following correction and apology, and the complaint was resolved on this basis:

In the story Baby Death Inquest Opens in last week's Advertiser it was wrongly stated that Finnley Braisby's parents Danny Braisby and Kirsty Holmes called for an ambulance. Danny Braisby alone called the emergency services. We apologise for any confusion.
