Dr Lucy Series

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Daily Telegraph


Dr Lucy Series complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that the newspaper had inaccurately reported the detail of proceedings before the Court of Protection.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the publication of the following update to the online article:

Following publication of this article, the High Court ruled that G lacked capacity under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and ordered that a further investigation be carried out to decide how her best interests will be met. The Court's expressed intention was that measures be taken to secure her in her own home and allow her to lead her life as she wanted without being bullied.
