Complainant Name:
Lacey Turner

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Daily Sport


Ms Carolyn Weinstein, the Company Manager for EastEnders, complained on behalf of actress Lacey Turner that the newspaper had published a deliberately misleading photograph of her. It showed her face superimposed onto a naked womans body. The complainant considered that the newspaper had failed to make it sufficiently clear that this was a fake image. She also questioned whether this image was indeed found on the internet, as claimed.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper offered an unreserved apology to Ms Turner and her family, and undertook that it would not publish any such images featuring depictions of EastEnders cast members in future.

Report: 75
