Complainant Name:
A man

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

A man raised concerns over the claim in an article that a photograph showing Prince William in a Tornado had been taken by a ‘plane spotter’. The complainant said that the idea that anyone could take a photograph of such a plane and recognise an individual inside it stretched credulity.

Resolution:

Although it could not reveal its source, the newspaper was satisfied that the description of the photographer as a plane spotter was accurate. The Assistant Editor emphasised that the same individual had spotted, but failed to photograph, the prince in the same location the previous day. The complainant was happy to accept this explanation as a resolution to his concerns.

Report: 77
