Clauses Noted: 3, 9

Publication: Western Telegraph

A man complained that the publication of the address of his family home, in addition to a photograph of it, effectively identified the family of an offender and constituted an invasion of privacy.

The newspaper wrote a personal letter to the complainant apologising if the family believed that the newspaper had been reckless and put it at risk. The newspaper also gave assurances that no further photographs of the family home would be published in relation to the offences.

Report: 63
