Complainant Name:
Nickola Gray

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Slough & Langley Observer

Complaint:

Nickola Gray complained that the newspaper had inaccurately used the word “tirade” when describing an incident of abuse towards her neighbour.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification in a suitably prominent position:

In an article on March 13 headlined "Race taunt tenant could lose home", it was reported that Ms Nickola Gray of Adam Close, Chippenham, was issued with an injunction and postponed possession order "after unleashing a tirade of racist and anti-social abuse". We would like to point out that, while the orders warned Ms Gray against the use of racist or verbally abusive language towards her neighbours in the future, there had been no "tirade" of racist abuse as we reported.

Report: 79
