Complainant Name:
Mr Christopher Barnett

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Wimbledon Guardian

Complaint:

Mr Christopher Barnett, representing the Merton and Wandsworth BNP, complained that the newspaper inaccurately stated that police had warned it could not guarantee the safety of those attending an anti-fascist meeting due to threats from the BNP.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper - which made clear that organisers had cancelled the meeting due to concerns about safety, following discussions with police - undertook to contact the local branch of the BNP for comment in future, rather than the national branch.

Report: 79
