Complainant Name:
The McCartney family

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Daily Mail


The McCartney family complained, through Sheridans solicitors, that publication of photographs taken of Beatrice McCartney and her parents in a hotel swimming pool were intrusive and a breach of privacy, especially given that Beatrices face was clearly visible.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper undertook not to republish the photographs under complaint and placed a warning note on its files, making clear that any future pictures of Beatrice would be very carefully considered at a senior level before publication having regard to both the terms of the Code and in particular the concerns of her parents.

Report: 73
