Complainant Name:
Miss Karen Le Doux

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sentinel (Staffordshire)


Miss Karen le Doux of Staffordshire complained that the newspaper had declined to publish a letter she had submitted in response to claims in another readers letter regarding an attack in which her son was involved.


The newspaper indicated that correspondence on the subject within the letters page of the newspaper was now closed. However, the complaint was resolved on the basis of a statement published on the PCC website which made her position on the following points clear: that her sons intention was to defend his young cousin; that the police found no evidence of happy slapping in the attack; and that, although a group of young people crowded around the incident, this did not automatically make them acquaintances of her son.

Report: 74
