Mr & Mrs Ragsdell

Publication: Scottish Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr & Mrs Ragsdell of Burrelton complained through Watson & Lyall Bowie Solicitors that an article which reported on a land dispute between the complainants and their neighbours contained inaccuracies and was discriminatory. In addition, the complainants were concerned that the article intruded into their privacy and that the newspaper had harassed Mr Ragsdell in order to take his photograph.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which had offered to send the complainants a letter of apology for any distress caused by its coverage amended its internal records to reflect the points raised.

Report: 75
