Complainant Name:
Ms Tanya Cummins

Clauses Noted: 1, 6

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Tanya Cummins complained to the Press Complaints Commission via Liane Groves of Unite the Union's Communications Office that the newspaper had published a photograph of her young daughter at a picket line of striking British Airways cabin crew which had been taken without her consent, raising a breach of Clause 6 (Children). The complainant was also concerned that the caption to the photograph, "Can we go home now? This youngster looks to have had enough of picketing" had misrepresented her daughter's thoughts.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved privately between the two parties following the complaint to the PCC with the removal of the photograph from the newspaper's website.
