Publication: The Sunday Times


A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had linked him to a story about Airport Security when it was not genuinely relevant and the details reported were inaccurate.


The newspaper did not accept that there had been a breach of the Code. However, the complaint was resolved when the newspaper took out the offending paragraph from the online article and the PCC negotiated the removal of the reference to the complainant's name in the Google link to the piece. The newspaper also took steps to ensure that online searches for the complainant's name did not show the article as a result.
