Mr I W Ray

Clauses Noted: 3, 4

Publication: Southern Daily Echo

Mr I W Ray of Southampton complained that approaches by the newspaper accompanied by the taking of photographs of him inside his doorway were in breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) and Clause 4 (Harassment).

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which accepted that the complainant should not have been approached a second time nor been photographed without his permission sent the complainant a private letter of apology. The editor made clear that he had reprimanded the staff responsible and had destroyed the photograph in question.
