Complainant Name:
Mr H Williams

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Hythe Herald

Complaint:

Mr H Williams of Hythe complained that an article was inaccurate in suggesting that hundreds of sinister leaflets had been fly-posted by the British National Party on the banks of the Royal Military Canal. The complainant said that no more than 30 leaflets which were on the subject of immigration had been displayed.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper published a letter from the complainant, which set out the background to the matter, noted that only about 30 leaflets had appeared and summarised the BNPs policy on immigration.

Report: 77
