Complainant Name:
Mr Richard Norman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Star (Sheffield)


Mr Richard Norman of Rotherham complained, through Julia Gratton, that an article on the subject of his conviction for racially aggravated criminal damage contained inaccuracies. In particular, he was concerned that the article had suggested that he had 'grabbed' the victim; he denied this completely.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper, which provided the reporter's notes to the effect that the claim of grabbing was made by the prosecution, amended its records to reflect the complainantís clear denial of the allegation.

Report: 72
