Complainant Name:
Mr Ronald Baird

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Northampton Chronicle & Echo


Mr Ronald Baird complained to the Press Complaints Commissions that the newspaper had published three articles that had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The articles had reported on the arrest, conviction and sentencing of the complainant to four years imprisonment for having incited underage girls to engage in sexual activity. The complainant said that the newspaper had reported aspects of the offence in a misleading way.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the amendment or removal of the online articles.
