Complaint:

Mr Frank Kane complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice in an article about a burglary at his home.

The matter was resolved when the newspaper offered to write the complainant a personal letter to apologise for any distress that the report had caused.
