Complainant Name:
Mr Mike Moss

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Guardian

Complaint:

Mr Mike Moss complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on remembrance of the Hillsborough disaster which inaccurately referred to Ms Ann Burkett as the mother of Mr Peter Burkett, whereas she was in fact his step-mother, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment of the online article and the newspaper recorded this change in a footnote.
