Complainant Name:
Miss Natasha Woest

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Miss Natasha Woest, sanctuary manager for the Society for Abandoned Animals (SAA), complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice about an article which reported that Archie, an abandoned cat, had died shortly after having been adopted by actress Anne Kirkbride. The complainant was particularly concerned that the article misled readers as to the circumstances in which Archie was released from the sanctuary.


The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the online article and a charitable donation to the SAA.
