Una Bennett

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: Flintshire Evening Leader

Complaint:

Una Bennett, the mother of a man who had taken his own life, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a front page article about her son's death which included a highly insensitive photograph of the location where it had taken place and a headline which, in her view, was inappropriate.

Resolution:

The newspaper acknowledged the distress the coverage had caused and the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated a private letter of apology for the complainant.
