Complainant Name:
Patricia Jaundrell

Clauses Noted: 3, 5

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Patricia Jaundrell complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached the Code in publishing without consent a photograph of her infant son taken from a Facebook page following an incident in which he had been mauled by the family's dog.

Resolution:

The newspaper expressed regret that the complainant had been upset by its story and apologised unreservedly for any distress it had caused, although it took the view that the story was of clear public interest and noted that the picture had been in the public domain. The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the picture from its article online and made clear that it would not be republished.
