Complaint:

Debra Kent complained through James Clayton to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately attributed to her a series of postings and activities on various websites, which appeared to be from her but which she said had been the work of an impersonator.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated for the online version of the article to be amended with the addition of the following statement setting out the complainant's view:

Debra Kent denies making the comments attributed to her or joining the online groups named. She says she has been impersonated by an anti-BNP propagandist posting in her name.
