A woman

Clauses Noted: 3, 4

Publication: News of the World


A woman complained that the newspaper had published an article - which named her and included her photograph - reporting that she had been in a relationship with an X Factor contestant . She said the piece had been published without her permission, and after she had made clear that she did not wish to speak on the subject.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from its website and made an undertaking as to future publication. It also made a payment to the complainant for the use of her photograph.
