Complainant Name:
Ms Judith Crisp

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: News of the World

Complaint:

Ms Judith Crisp of Ipswich complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about Paul Mason, a former ‘world's fattest man', had intruded into her private life. She was concerned that, without her consent, the newspaper had published a childhood photograph of her with Mr Mason, as well as included reference to her in the text of the article.

Resolution:

The newspaper explained that the photographs included in the article had been provided by another member of the complainant's family, with no restriction on their use. While it did not accept any breach of Clause 3 of the Code, the matter was resolved when the photograph and references to the complainant were removed from the online article.
