A woman

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: Western Daily Press


A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) about a report of an inquest into the death of her brother-in-law. The complainant was concerned that the article contained intrusive information, and that the reporting had been insensitive.


The matter was resolved when the newspaper wrote privately to the complainant, apologising for any distress caused to the deceased's family.
