Complainant Name:
Michelle Smith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard

Complaint:

Michelle Smith complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article about a photograph that showed her holding a gun. She said the piece contained inaccuracies and was generally misleading to readers as it failed to explain the reason behind the photograph. The complainant explained that the image, a personal photograph taken on a class trip, had been uploaded to her school's website by mistake.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the online article and annotated its archive records in light of the complainant's concerns.
