Complainant Name:
Mr Sid Owen

Clauses Noted: 2, 3, 9

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Sid Owen, the EastEnders actor, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article which reported that his brother had been convicted of drug offences intruded into his privacy and identified him as a relative of an individual convicted of crime without consent. He also complained that the newspaper had not afforded him an opportunity to reply.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the complainant - having agreed to disagree with the newspaper on a number of points - accepted an offer to append a statement outlining his position on the matter to the online version of the article.
