Complainant Name:
Ms Christine Stewart

Clauses Noted: 1, 12

Publication: Gloucester Gazette


Ms Christine Stewart of Peterborough complained that the suggestion in an article that a goat had been killed in a pagan-style ritual was inaccurate and discriminatory. She emphasised that pagans found animal sacrifices abhorrent.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant making clear that the killing of an animal was abhorrent to Pagans, and describing paganism and the beliefs held by Pagans in greater detail.

Report: 74
