A couple

Clauses Noted: 3, 6

Complaint:

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.

Resolution:

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.
