Complainant Name:
Ms Nicola Peckett

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: Sheffield Telegraph

Complaint:

Ms Nicola Peckett of Samaritans complained that an article contained excessive detail about the manner in which a man had taken his own life.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper took steps to alert staff to the problems of reporting on inquests in light of amendments to Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Code of Practice. The online version of the story was amended to reflect the concerns that had been raised.

Report: 78
