Mr S Knight

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The News (Portsmouth)

Complaint:
Mr S Knight, of Portsmouth, complained that an article reporting the closure of two flats suspected of being drug dens contained a picture of one of the women evicted which included part of the complainant's face. The complainant was identifiable from this image, but had nothing to do with the woman whose court case was reported.

Resolution:
The complainant accepted the newspaper's offer to publish a letter making clear that, as far as he was concerned, he did not know the woman featured in the image and accompanying article.

Report: 66
