Publication: The Sun


Teacher Michelle Smith complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a story about a personal photograph that was uploaded to her school's website by mistake. She said the article contained inaccuracies and was generally misleading to readers as it failed to explain the full circumstances behind the taking of the photograph.


The newspaper initially responded by amending the online article and offering the complaint the opportunity to submit a letter for publication. After further discussion, the complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the online article completely.
