A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission that consecutive articles - reporting the charge and conviction of a man for sexual assault - contained information which, taken together, enabled the jigsaw identification of her as the victim of the attack.


The Commission discussed the case at a formal meeting. However, in accordance with the complainant's wishes, no adjudication was made. The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated a private letter of apology for the complainant.
