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.


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.
