A man

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: The Argus (Brighton)


A man from West Sussex complained that an article about the suicide of his son contained excessive detail. He said he was worried about his grandchildren discovering the information on the internet and asked that the newspaper might consider deleting the report from its website.


The newspaper, taking account of all the circumstances, said it was not willing to delete the article because it was a legitimate record of a tragic death. However, it understood the complainant's concerns and it agreed, therefore, to remove certain details about his son's death from the report. The matter was resolved on that basis.
