Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Surrey Mirror


A man complained on behalf of his father that the newspaper had published a hospital document containing his fathers medical details which had been found discarded on a bus. Although the patients details had been obscured, he raised concerns that the published image could be cleaned up exposing his family to criminal activity.


The newspaper emphasised that the patients details had been heavily obscured in the published article and assured the complainant that the document could not be cleaned up to make the names legible. The complainant accepted this assurance as a resolution to his complaint.

Report: 77
