Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 3, 11

Publication: Daily Echo (Bournemouth)

Complaint:

A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission that - by revealing the address of a man who had been convicted of child abuse - the newspaper had identified the child victims of a sexual assault, as well as intruded into their private lives. She said this had caused them great distress and fear.

Resolution:

While the newspaper did not accept that the article was in breach of the Editors' Code, the matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated a private letter of apology to the complainant.
