Complainant Name:
Paul Morgan

Clauses Noted: 1, 6

Publication: Henley Standard

Complaint:

Paul Morgan complained that the newspaper had misleadingly published a photograph of his fifteen-year-old daughter without obtaining any parental consent and two of her friends in the park to illustrate an article about underage drinking.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following apology:

In our edition of February 29th, we published a picture showing three children in connection with a story on how underage drinking is not a problem in Henley.

We accept we did not get parental consent for the picture to be used and wish to make it clear that the children in the picture were not drinking alcohol. We apologise for this.

Report: 77
