Complainant Name:
Ms Louise Dale

Clauses Noted: 6

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Louise Dale of Ashton Under Lyne complained to the Press Complaints Commission about a photograph appearing in a report on child obesity in Britain, which she believed to be an image of her son. She was concerned that the photograph had been published without her consent.

Resolution:

Following receipt of the complaint, the newspaper immediately removed the image from the online article. However, it denied that the photograph was of the complainant's son, and explained the circumstances in which it had been taken. The matter was resolved when the complainant accepted that the boy in the photograph was not her son.
