Complainant Name:
Mrs Deborah Burnside

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: North Devon Journal


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.


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
