Trust in journalism – IMPRESS
We can look into complaints about items we have published which are in our control. We adhere to the Standards Code adopted by IMPRESS and can only deal with complaints which relate to an alleged breach of the standards set out in this Code.

We can only deal with your complaint if you are:
– personally and directly affected by an alleged breach of the Code
– a representative group affected by an alleged breach of the Code, where there is public interest in your complaint
– a third party seeking to ensure accuracy of published information

First step
We are also regulated by IMPRESS, but initial complaints must be made to us via our dedicated online complaints form.
