Complainant Name:
Chris Mountenay

Clauses Noted: 3

Publication: Northampton Chronicle & Echo

Complaint:

Chris Mountenay complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published his photograph alongside an article which referred to him as a serving soldier. The complainant had not given his express permission for the image to be used and - given his role in the armed forces - he found its publication intrusive.

Resolution:

The newspaper explained that the image was re-published having previously appeared in conjunction with another story some months earlier. The newspaper did not accept that there had been a breach of the Code but acknowledged the complainant's concerns and the matter was resolved on the basis of the removal of the photograph from the online article and its deletion from the newspaper's archive.
