Complainant Name:
Mr Eric Shrewsbury

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Eric Shrewsbury complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had published inaccuracies in a report of the death of his granddaughter's father.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the publication of the following correction and apology:

An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated Mr Parkinson was staying with relatives in the house where Jayden was born when he died. In fact, he was staying with friends. We are happy to make this clear and apologise for any additional distress caused to Jayden's family at this difficult time.
