Thomas Cook disappointed by Ofcom ruling

Thomas Cook has admitted it is disappointed by Ofcom’s decision to reject its complaint about a BBC Panorama programme.
 
The regulator dismissed Thomas Cook’s claims that the programme about the death of two children on holiday in Corfu was unbalanced and unfair.
 
A Thomas Cook spokeswoman said:  “The accident involving Christianne and Robert Shepherd in Corfu was a terrible tragedy and the company’s deepest condolences will always be with the children’s family and friends.
 
“We are clearly disappointed by Ofcoms decision to reject our appeal.  We continue to believe that the Panorama programme did not provide a fair and balanced report on the tragic accident in Corfu and remain confident that the two individuals (who work, or have worked for Thomas Cook) will be fully vindicated.”
