Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: North Devon Journal


A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 3 (Privacy) about a photograph published alongside an article reporting that Complete Quality Care Ltd had been announced as a winner of the North Devon Journal local business accelerators (LBA) scheme. The complainant, who no longer worked at the company, was concerned that the image inaccurately suggested that she was still an employee there. She was also concerned that her consent had not been sought to use the picture.


The matter was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of an apology, making clear that the complainant was no longer working at the company.
