Complainant Name:
Mrs Stephanie Faulkner

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Press Association

Complaint:

Mrs Stephanie Faulkner complained that an item published by Press Association regarding an ongoing trial involving her son, James King, gave her address as his place of residence. She said that her son had never lived at her address and never could, given that it was in a retirement complex where residents had to be aged over sixty.

Resolution:

The editor of PA said that the information about Mr Kingís address had been used in good faith after it came from police and was said in court. However, in view of the complainantís representation he was happy to give an assurance that the address would not be republished in future coverage.

Report: 77
