Complainant Name:
A couple

Clauses Noted: 3, 6

Publication: The Sun


A couple complained that the newspaper had published a photograph of their children one of whom had recently died in a tragic accident and a photograph of their wedding without their consent.


The newspaper removed the article from its website and undertook not to use the images again, as did the agency that had provided the pictures. The Managing Editor wrote a letter of apology to the couple, and the newspaper made a charitable donation. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 78
