Complainant Name:
Mr Christopher Barnett

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Wimbledon Guardian


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.


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
