Prolific North has an update to a breach previously noted on this blog:

The former editor of the Newcastle Journal has launched an appeal after being fined for breaching an anonymity order in a child sex case.

Brian Aitken was last week fined £1,600 after the Trinity Mirror-owned title published a story naming the school attended by a school worker accused of sexual offences involving one of the pupils.

He was prosecuted under the terms of section 39 (2) of the Children and Young Persons Act 1933.
