Complainant Name:
Mr D Ramkin

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: News Shopper (Bromley)


Mr D. Ramkin of Kent complained that the newspaper had published a letter from an anonymous reader in response to his published letter on the subject of obesity. He felt the letter in response was a personal attack on him and had caused a great deal of distress.


The newspaper assured the complainant that its intention was not to publish any letter that would cause him discomfort or distress. The complaint was resolved when the editor apologised if the published response had upset him and offered to write to him privately to this effect.

Report: 74
