Complainant Name:
Mr Stephen Nutt

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail


Mr Stephen Nutt complained that the newspaper had followed up a story in an earlier newspaper, publishing photographs of him taken from his Facebook page, and repeating the inaccurate allegation that they showed him smoking cannabis. He was concerned that the story was published merely due to the position of his father, Professor David Nutt (the former Government drugs advisor).


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from its website, and made clear it had no intention of republishing the text or the pictures.
