Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Ealing & Acton Gazette


A man complained that an article about his concerns about drug dealing on the estate where he lived had identified him and included his street address against his wishes. He and his family felt vulnerable as a result.


While the newspaper did not accept that it was aware of the complainant's concerns about identification prior to publication, it sent a private letter to the complainant, apologising for the distress caused and making clear that the article had been removed from its website and archives. The complaint was resolved on that basis.
