Complainant Name:
The British Forces

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Record

The British Forces based in Cyprus complained that a photograph which accompanied an article reporting that three soldiers had tested positive for drugs identified soldiers who were unconnected to the incident.

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published a clarification making clear that only two soldiers had tested positive for drug taking and they were unconnected to those who were identifiable in the photograph.

Report: 72
