Complainant Name:
Wendi Titmus

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Halesowen News


Wendi Titmus complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code by publishing an article which, in her view, suggested to readers that a charge had been brought against her son following an allegation of assault when this was not the case.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarifying footnote alongside the online article:

"We have been asked to point out that there was never any legal action against the victim, Tyler Kimberly, as a result of the allegation of assault against a young woman."
