Mrs C Willson

Clauses Noted: 1, 6

Publication: Banbury Guardian

Mrs C Willson of Banbury complained that an article on truancy had included photograph of her son at school which was taken without her permission. She was also concerned that the articles headline suggested that her son was playing truant.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper which argued that the photograph did not involve the childs welfare and that the headline did not give such an impression destroyed the photographs in question.
