Newspaper said there was a “powerful public interest” in identifying suspect
The Press Complaints Commission was set up in 1991 to ensure that British newspapers and magazines follow the letter and spirit of an ethical Code of Practice dealing with issues such as inaccuracy, privacy, misrepresentation and harassment. It was replaced by the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) in 2014.
Most complaints are resolved directly by editors to the satisfaction of those complaining. ISPO adjudicates formally on the remainder, with all critical adjudications published in full by the publications involved.
