Complainant Name:
Mrs Deborah Burnside

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: North Devon Journal

Complaint:

Mrs Deborah Burnside of Ilfacombe complained that a reader’s letter had contained a number of inaccuracies with reference to an incident that took place on a dog walk. Specifically, the complainant was concerned that Mrs Mutton – the author of the letter – had not mentioned the fact that she had acted violently towards the dog – owned by the complainant’s friend – and abusively towards the complainant and her friend.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published an edited version of the complainant’s letter which set out that Mrs Mutton had acted violently and abusively and that – as a result – the complainant had reported her to the RSPCA.

Report: 73
