Complainant Name:
Mrs Tina Middleton

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: The Sentinel (Staffordshire)

Complaint:

Mrs Tina Middleton complained that an article about the arrest of her next-door-but-one neighbours had included a picture not of the neighbours’ home but of her property. She was concerned that people who saw the article would be misled into thinking that she was involved in the incident. She also considered the inclusion of the picture to be an invasion of her privacy.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper agreed to remove the photograph from its archive.

Report: 75
