IPSO has today announced a full response to the recommendations made by Lord Kerslake in his report on the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack.
The UK’s seven best-selling national daily newspapers and eight best-selling Sunday newspapers have agreed to sign up to the IPSO compulsory arbitration scheme announced on Tuesday this week. This will mean that members of the public can get low-cost access to justice without having to go to court for legal claims including libel, invasion of privacy, data protection or harassment. The participating newspapers cannot refuse to arbitrate on any valid claim. It costs a maximum in fees of £100 for the claimant.
In the first of our series of guest blogs from Samaritans, Lorna Fraser, Executive Lead of Samaritans’ Media Advisory Service introduces the service and its guidelines to support safe and informative coverage of suicide and self-harm.
IPSO staff members are available to assist and advise members of the public, complainants, editors and journalists. Please contact us on 0300 123 2220 or email@example.com
