Complainant Name:
Mrs Rita Evans

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Take a Break

Complaint:

Mrs Rita Evans of East Sussex complained that an article in the “Mums’ army” – a pressure group fighting for tougher action against anti-social behaviour – section of the magazine published her telephone number without her consent and inaccurately suggested that she was ‘terrified’ of local yobs. The complainant said that, on the contrary, she had told the magazine that they did not frighten her.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the magazine published a letter from the complainant in which she offered to reply to the emails of any other victims of yob culture.

Report: 73
