Complaints – Who To Contact
The Gazette adheres to the Editors’ Code of Practice (which you can find at www.ipso.co.uk.) We are regulated by the Independent Press Standards Organisation. Complaints about stories should be referred firstly to the Editor by email at: email@example.com or by post at Unit 1 Brunel Court, Brunel Way, Severalls Industrial Estate, Colchester, Essex, CO4 9XP.
It is essential that your email or letter is headed “Complaint” in the subject line and contains the following information:
- Your name, email address, postal address and daytime telephone number.
- The newspaper title or website, preferably a copy of the story or at least the date, page number or website address of the article and any headline.
- A full explanation of your complaint by reference to the Editors’ Code.
If you do not provide any of the information above this may delay or prevent us dealing with your complaint. Your personal details will only be used for administration purposes.
If we cannot reach a resolution between us then you can contact IPSO by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at IPSO, c/o Halton House, 20-23 Holborn, London EC1N 2JD.
