Complainant Name:
Mr Frank Kane

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Newtownards Chronicle


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. He was particularly concerned that the newspaper had printed his full address and that this had left him vulnerable to further crimes.


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.
