Ms Suzanne Richardson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Sunderland Echo

Ms Suzanne Richardson of Sunderland complained that an article reporting her appearance in court for obtaining job seekers allowance by deception was misleading by omitting to include that she had paid the money back before her court appearance. She also raised concerns that the article said that she had declined to comment when in fact she was unavailable for comment.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification and a letter from the complainants parents.

Report: 72
