Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Coventry Telegraph

Complaint:

A man contacted the Press Complaints Commission about an article reporting court proceedings in relation to a burglary carried out at his home. He was concerned that the article's disclosure of his address had rendered his home vulnerable, and had left him and his wife feeling victimised.

Resolution:

The complainant was informed that newspapers have a general entitlement to report matters revealed in open court. However, the complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered a written undertaking that it would not publish details which may identify the complainant's property in future articles reporting court cases arising from the burglary at his premises.
