Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Messenger


A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a report of his court case which included the name of the street he was living on, which he considered to be an intrusion into his privacy in breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The newspaper had not reported his acquittal, which he considered to be a breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Code.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the street name from the online coverage and the newspaper said it would seek to report the final outcome of the case.
