Complainant Name:
Ms Donna Price

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Woman's Weekly

Complaint:

Ms Donna Price complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the magazine had published a private family photograph, without seeking consent, in order to illustrate a story wholly unconnected to her family, but bearing similarities to her family's situation.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following apology in the magazine:

On the 10 November 2009, we published an article relating Christine and Gary Harris's difficulties in seeing their grandson. We would like to clarify that the picture accompanying the article did not depict Christine and Gary with their grandson. We apologise for any upset caused by this confusion.
