Complainant Name:
Miss Karen Bramwell

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: Buxton Advertiser

Complaint:

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

Resolution:

The newspaper pointed out that the complainantís Auntís 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 Auntís 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.

Report: 74
