Michelle Smith

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard


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.


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