Feedback about the website


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.

You can submit a 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.

We’re also regulated by Impress. But initial complaints must be made to us in writing at the following address:

We’ll acknowledge your complaint by email or in writing within seven calendar days and will normally respond to your complaint with a final decision letter within 21 calendar days. If we uphold your complaint, we will tell you the remedial actions we have taken.

If you’re not satisfied with the final response to your complaint, or if you don’t hear from us within 21 calendar days of submitting your complaint, then you can refer your complaint to our Independent regulator Impress:
