A man complained that a photograph of him taken at the Tottenham Hotspur v Sevilla UEFA Cup match in which he appeared injured had been misleadingly used in a newspaper article about football violence. Following the resolution of the complaint with the newspaper, the complainant wished for the source of the image to be contacted to make it aware of his concerns.


The complaint was resolved when the news agency attached a note to the photograph on its archive making clear that a complaint had been made through the PCC and that care should be taken to ensure that the picture was used only in an appropriate context. It also circulated a note to its subscribers making them aware of the situation.

Report: 75
