Mrs Jayne Foster

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Star

Complaint:

Mrs Jayne Foster of Epping complained that the newspaper had used a photograph of her mother’s final resting place in Epping Forest Burial Park to illustrate a story about Jade Goody. The photograph had included the memorial post on which her mother’s name was legible, and had been accompanied by the caption: “The site where Jade would like to be buried in Epping Forest.”

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper apologised and removed the image from its picture library to ensure it would not be used again.

Report: 79
