A man complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article discussing the growing number of young children practising Mixed Martial Arts or 'cage fighting'. The complainant's concern related to a published photograph of his son and a caption stating he was 'one of 100 children training in mixed martial arts at the [Lion's Den] gym in Exmouth'.


The matter was resolved when, in addition to the removal of the photograph and caption from the newspaper's website, the PCC negotiated the publication of a correction making clear that his son was not training in combat or training to be a cagefighter, but was attending a Lion Cubs preschool development session at the Lion's Den gym in Exmouth when photographed.
