Complainant Name:
Miss T Ford

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scottish Sun


Miss T Ford of Dubai complained that an article which reported that international vice girls had flocked to the Edinburgh Festival had misleadingly included a photograph of her, a professional model. The complainant said that the article had not made clear that she was a model, suggesting that she was a vice girl.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper - which removed the article from its website, deleted the image from its files and gave an assurance as to future publication - published the following correction and apology:

Further to our article about vice activities taking place at the Edinburgh Festival (August 18) we would like to make clear the photograph used to illustrate the story was posed by a professional model and not an international vice girl, as suggested by the article. We apologise for any misunderstanding.

Report: 79
