Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Miss Karen Bramwell of High Peak complained on behalf of her Aunt that an inquest report into her Grandfathers death disclosed her Aunts medical condition.


The newspaper pointed out that the complainants Aunts medical condition was entirely relevant to the inquest and was disclosed at the inquest proceedings. After receiving a transcript of the inquest proceedings, the complainant accepted that the detail relating to her Aunts health had indeed been mentioned and accepted the newspaper was entitled to make reference to it. She expressed her personal view though that the detail should not have been revealed in the first place.
