Complainant Name:
Gillian Kay

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Heywood Advertiser

Complaint:

Gillian Kay complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had failed to distinguish between comment, conjecture and fact in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice when it reported her husband's cause of death before it had been established at inquest.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper undertook to publish the outcome of the inquest and correctly report the established cause of death at that stage.
