More than 3,000 complaints were made to the Press Complaints Commission last year, an all-time record, according to its annual report, published yesterday.

The report reveals that of the complaints that raised a possible breach of the PCC's code, eight in 10 were resolved directly between the publication and the person complaining.

PCC Chairman Lord Wakeham described the figure, the highest on record, as a sign that the public knew about the PCC and was confident it would deliver results.
