Complainant Name:
Mr Peter Carey

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Evening Standard


Mr Peter Carey complained through Best & Soames Limited that an ES magazine feature on his recent divorce based largely on an interview with his ex-wife contained information which intruded into his privacy in breach of the Code.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the information from its websites, internal electronic archive and database, agreed not to publish it in future and published the following apology in the magazine and online:

On 26 May we published an article about the novelist Peter Carey headlined A Booker-winning Bust-Up. The item contained private and personal details about Mr Carey to which he has objected. We apologise to him for distress and embarrassment caused.

Report: 74
