Mr David Owen from Exmouth complained about an article – on the subject of David Cameron’s failure to achieve the withdrawal of Conservative MEPs from the European Peoples Party Group in the European Parliament – written by an activist for the UK Independence Party. He was concerned that the newspaper had failed to make clear the author’s political affiliations, referring to him as a "Westcountry writer".


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant.
