Complainant Name:
Ms Karen Machin

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: The Argus (Brighton)


Ms Karen Machin complained that the newspaper had published excessive detail about a method of suicide, in an inquest report about a man who had died after eating poisonous berries. The article identified the type of berry, and the number necessary to cause death to a child and adult.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed references to the method of suicide from its online article.

Report: 79
