Mr S Canning of Exeter, Devon, complained that a reporter's behaviour outside school gates in asking questions of children (including the complainant's) about one of the teachers, was in breach of Clause 12.


A new editor explained to the complainant the newspaper's usual policy that staff should not interview or photograph children under the age of 16 without the express consent of the parent or other responsible adult and that this policy had been restated to the newspaper's journalists.

Report: 37
