Complainant Name:
Mrs Helen Dunbar

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunday Mail

Complaint:
Mrs Helen Dunbar of Quarriers Village, near Paisley, complained on behalf, and with the signed authorisation, of Mrs Helen Porteous that an article about the latter being ‘kicked out of her home’ was inaccurate. She also complained that the article was misleading in its portrayal of Mrs Porteous’ husband, John, who had previously been convicted of abusing children.

Resolution:
The newspaper put a note on its library files outlining the complainant’s version of how Helen Porteous had left her home (ie her name had been on a council waiting list for housing outside Quarriers village for some time before her husband was accused of the crimes for which he was subsequently convicted).

Report: 68
