Braintree: A correction and apology
1:00pm Tuesday 3rd July 2012 in News
We would like to make it clear that Ryan Gibbons tragically died at the scene of a motorbike accident in Tye Green on April 16 and not in hospital, as was stated in the article, Son with passion for motorbikes mourned, published in the April 18 issue of the Braintree and Witham Times.
The inaccuracy was as the result of incorrect information being supplied to us by the East of Anglian Ambulance Service. We would like to apologise for the error and for the distress it caused Ryan’s family.
We are also reviewing our procedures and training of reporters for dealing with sensitive stories, and will take any action necessary’.
