Complaint:
Ms Amy Hitchcock of London complained that the newspaper had photographed her inside a pub, while talking to TV presenter Chris Tarrant. Ms Hitchcock was speaking to Mr Tarrant in her role as a researcher for a television programme on which he was set to appear. She was also concerned that the article had wrongly implied that the meeting was personal rather than professional.

Resolution:
The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the photographs from their records to ensure that they would not be republished.

Report: 72
