Mr C O’Rourke of Liverpool complained that a reporter from the newspaper had given his 13-year old son money for identifying individuals in a photograph. The image included his older son.

The newspaper did not consider that its reporter had breached the Code – the payment had been made to the complainant’s eldest son, who was over 16. However, it assured the complainant that the photograph had not been and would not be used, nor was there ever any intention of showing his son’s image.
