Complainant Name:
A married couple

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Scottish News of the World


A married couple complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had quoted them in a misleading context in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code and intruded into their private lives in breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Code.


The newspaper did not accept that it had breached the Code. Nonetheless, the matter was resolved when the Commission negotiated a private letter from the newspaper to the complainants.
