I HAVE read the biased article regarding my son's court appearance (page 6, March 7) and your reporter got the main facts wrong.
Firstly my son did not "beat up" a youngster. The fact is he hit out once, plainly visible on CCTV, as he was surrounded by five would-be attackers.
Secondly the "youngster" had been drinking in the Wheatsheaf, so was presumably 18 or over.
I know my son is no angel, but I prefer to read fact rather than fiction. He has paid the fine and will do the community service, so why must it be churned out in the local paper?

Editor's footnote: Simon Fox pleaded guilty to using threatening behaviour and told magistrates he was "ashamed of what he saw on CCTV." A fundamental right is that the press (and public) are invited into court to see justice not only done but seen to be done. Our highly experienced court reporter continues to do just that.
