Publication: Northumberland Gazette

Complaint:

Allison Jones of Northumberland complained that the newspaper took and published a picture of the inside of her parents’ house when covering the devastation of the recent floods.

Resolution:

The newspaper sought to explain that the photograph was used after staff mistakenly assumed it had been submitted by the house owner. The editor said he regretted that the picture was taken and published without the house owner’s consent. He published an apology to this effect and the complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 78
