Complainant Name:
Ms S Thompson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scunthorpe Evening Telegraph

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.

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
