A woman

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Northampton Chronicle & Echo

Complaint:
A woman from Northampton complained that she had been named in an article after the newspaper had promised to protect her anonymity. She was concerned that this could put her at risk.

Resolution:
The newspaper explained that there had been a mix-up between a number of its staff which had led to the complainantís name appearing. The editor wrote personally to her to apologise for the distress that had been caused and assured her that any future articles about the subject would not include her name or details.

Report: 62
