Ms Amy Hitchcock

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: News of the World

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.

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

Report: 72
