Ms Rachel Creser

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: Bucks Herald

Complaint:

Ms Rachel Creser complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice that the newspaper had insensitively reported on the inquest into her uncle's death.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following apology:

In a story published in last week's Herald (October 24) on page 3 reporting the inquest into Ben Creser's death, a detail was included that caused distress to Mr Creser's family members and friends. The editor regrets that the article upset the family and friends of the deceased and apologises for any undue distress caused.
