Complainant Name:
Ms Jackie Wood

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: Daily Mirror

Complaint:
Ms Jackie Wood complained, through a Family Liaison Officer from Hertfordshire Police, that an article was intrusive at a time of grief for her and her family. The article concerned the suspected recent death of the complainant’s sister and contained new – and graphic – information of which the family had previously been unaware.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published an apology to the family for the distress caused by the article and indicated that it would use its best endeavours to contact a family representative in advance of further news breaking in regard to this case.

Report: 69
