HAVING read an article regarding a gentleman who was found growing cannabis at his home (Man grew drugs in van, May 23) I am struggling to understand what relevance his ethnicity plays in the report?
Surely his name, age and possibly address is all you would normally print?
You further refer to his home as being situated on a '"transit camp" for travellers.
There are no transit camps in Worcestershire.
Malvern Meadows is a permanent caravan site which has been occupied by many of the residents for 24 years. Law-abiding residents!
I think you should consider how the report might appear to some people as an insidious attempt to discriminate against a minority group.
Will you describe the ethnicity of every individual you report on in future?
