Complainant Name:
Ms S Thompson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph

Complaint:
Ms S Thompson of Scunthorpe complained that a picture of her had been used to illustrate a story about the dangers of debt with which she was not involved. The use of the photo, in which she was clearly recognisable, was, therefore, misleading.

Resolution:
The matter was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification making clear that, although her picture had been used, the complainant was not the woman referred to in the article and was not in debt.

Report: 64
