PCC throws out complaint by councillor Patrick Warner against the Herald

The Press Complaints Commission has thrown out a complaint against the Eastbourne Herald by Sovereign Conservative councillor Patrick Warner after reports of his non-payment of council tax and failed business were printed. The councillor claimed the coverage was of no public interest, intruded into his private life, was inaccurate and amounted to harassment under the Editor’s Code of Practice.

But the Commission said the Herald had done nothing wrong.
