Complainant Name:
Mrs Louise Butters

Clauses Noted: 3, 6

Publication: News of the World

Complaint:

Mrs Louise Butters complained that – in an article about her ex-husband and his new partner – the newspaper had named her children without parental permission, and had published an unauthorised photograph of her.

Resolution:

The newspaper removed the article from its website and deleted the complainant’s picture from its database. It also undertook not to name the complainant’s children in future coverage without her consent. The newspaper wrote a letter to the complainant confirming the measures it had taken, and the complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 79
