Complainant Name:
Mr Gordon Campbell

Clauses Noted: 1, 6

Publication: Scottish Daily Mail


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.


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.
