Mr David Shea of Harrow complained that a picture in which his two children could be recognised had been used to illustrate a story on children being sold as slaves and prostitutes, in breach of Clause 6 (Children).


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper contacted the complainant and offered to remove the picture from the online article and to ensure that it was not used again by permanently removing it from its image library.
