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 BNP’s policy on immigration.

Report: 77
