Complainant Name:
Accessible Transport West Somerset

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Crier


Mrs Barbara Middleton, Interim Manager for Accessible Transport West Somerset (a community transport scheme) complained that an article reporting the resignation of one of its co-ordinators contained inaccuracies. The complainant argued that Mr Ron Wright had not resigned but had in fact accepted redundancy, a package which included several thousands of pounds of charitable funds in a tax free redundancy payment. Furthermore, the complainant said that there had been no price increase from £20 to £125 for the use of the schemes mini bus and that there had been no huge hike in price for many users.


The newspaper offered to publish a letter from the complainant to allow her to set out her position. However, the complainant decided to let the matter rest and allow her concerns to be registered through a statement on the PCC website.
