A woman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Peterborough Evening Telegraph


A woman complained that the newspaper, which had reported the allegations that her (unnamed) son had shot another pupil with a BB gun – allegations which led to his exclusion and criminal proceedings being initiated against him – had not reported the subsequent court’s verdict that did not find him guilty.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered to publish a follow-up article in light of the court’s decision.

Report: 63
