Complainant Name:
Britt Luisa Ros

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph

Complaint:

Britt Luisa Ros complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published information in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Code. She felt that the newspaper had published hurtful and incorrect comments about her parent's divorce in the obituary of her father.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following wording at the foot of the online article:

When first posted this obituary stated that after their house, Edritt House "was finished, and there was nothing else to do, Edmundo Ros' s first wife Britt, soon tired of her life as a bandleader's consort". The reference was removed at the request of the family and we apologise for the distress it caused.

The newspaper also sent a private letter of apology to the complainant.
