Complainant Name:
Kathleen Allinson

Clauses Noted: 1, 4

Publication: Wanstead & Woodford Guardian

Complaint:

Kathleen Allinson of Essex complained that a reporter from the newspaper had approached her for comment at the school gates when she was picking up her children. She explained that this followed a report on teacher at the school who had been convicted of making and distributing obscene images of her engaging in sexual acts with children (this conviction did not involve children at the school).

Resolution:

The newspaper said the reporter approached the complainant outside the school on only one occasion. That said, the newspaper undertook that none of its staff would approach the complainant again in connection with the case. The complainant accepted this undertaking as a resolution to her complaint.

Report: 77
