Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Western Gazette


A woman complained that an article was inaccurate on two points: first, the suggestion that her son had been arrested at her home address; and second, that her home was the subject of a police raid.


The newspaper offered to publish an apology to the complainant. However, the complainant made clear that she did not wish for anything further to be published in the press which might identify her family. The newspaper therefore wrote a private letter of apology to her undertaking that the material would not be repeated in the future. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 77
