Publication: Daily Mail


A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published a photograph which clearly showed him and his family taking part in a traditional welcoming ceremony in Laos. While the complainant's family had given permission for photograph to be taken, they were not made aware that the image was for use in a national newspaper and had been advised that their faces would not be shown. The complainant considered that the publication of the photograph was intrusive.


The newspaper explained the circumstances of how the photograph was obtained and said it was regrettable if there had been any misunderstanding. The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the photograph in question from the newspaper's website and the newspaper arranged for the image to be deleted from its archive.
