Complainant Name:
Tom Chiverton

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Manchester Evening News

Complaint:

Tom Chiverton complained that the newspaper had published a photograph showing a woman holding a specimen ID card which was wrongly captioned with a line that read "Angela brandishes her new identity card after being first in line to sign up".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction under the headline "Identity card picture caption":

A caption which appeared on page 8 of the MEN on December 3 stated a picture showed columnist Angela Epstein holding her new identity card after becoming the first member of the public to sign up for the national scheme. The picture used was actually taken at an earlier event and showed Angela holding a specimen card. We apologise if this error caused any confusion.
