Complainant Name:
Ms Debbie Robertson

Clauses Noted: 1, 5, 6, 14

Publication: Middlesbrough Evening Gazette


Ms Debbie Robertson of Stockton on Tees complained that an article about her brother Ivor Jones who was imprisoned for manslaughter following the killing of his wife was inaccurate when it referred to the existence of a family feud. The complainant was also concerned that a series of articles on the case intruded into the grief of Mr Jones children and raised a breach of Clause 6 (Children). Finally, the complainant raised concerns, with signed authorisation, that correspondence from her friend had been passed to a third party without permission.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper and the complainant met privately to discuss the coverage of the case.

Report: 73
