Complainant Name:
Mr David Rickelsford

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Sunday Mercury


Mr David Rickelsford complained that an article reporting that he had been banned from his own home had contained a number of inaccuracies with reference to his dispute with his neighbours. The complainant was particularly concerned that the article had reported matters which had not been confirmed in court as fact. He also contended that the newspaper had intruded into his privacy.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper undertook to interview the complainant at the conclusion of his current court case in order to put across his side of the story.

Report: 73
