Complainant Name:
Ms Barbara George

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The People

Complaint:

Ms Barbara George complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had inaccurately described a photograph it had published as a recent image of the actress Sandra Bullock "near LA". The complainant said the picture of Ms Bullock had been taken in Boston in 2008.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated for the publication of the following clarification:

Sandra Bullock

On March 28, The People published in good faith a picture supplied by an agency who claimed it was of Sandra Bullock in her first public appearance since the publication of claims several months ago that her husband had cheated on her.

This was incorrect: The picture was taken in Boston in 2008.
