Solent agency accuses PA of 'lifting' Jo Yeates exclusive

Press Association accused of breaching copyright in Jo Yeates story.

Solent News and Photo Agency has accused the Press Association of breaching its copyright over an exclusive interview conducted with the father of murdered landscape architect Jo Yeates.

The independent news agency claimed it was consulting lawyers after an exclusive interview with David Yeates on 28 December was "lifted" from a regional newspaper and distributed across the PA news wire.

The National Association of Press Agencies, which represents independent news agencies, has written to Press Association editor Jonathan Grun to "protest strongly" over claims it distributed a story which was written by a Napa member agency.
