Complainant Name:
Mr Gordon Campbell

Clauses Noted: 1, 6

Publication: Scottish Daily Mail

Complaint:

Mr Gordon Campbell complained that an article which reported that his grandchildren had been orphaned following a car crash which killed their mother contained a photograph of the children which had been published without consent. He also said that the article contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the photograph from its picture library, marked its cuttings and databases, wrote a private letter of regret to the family and made donations to two charities of the complainant's choice.
