Complainant Name:
Ms Lynn Hales/Chafin

Clauses Noted: 6

Publication: Daily Mail


Ms Lynn Hales/Chafin complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 6 (Children) of the Editors' Code of Practice about an article reporting on a continuing international custody dispute relating to her daughter. The complainant was concerned that the publication of her daughter's name and photographs of her constituted an unnecessary intrusion into her time at school.


The matter was resolved when - in addition to the removal of all photographs of the complainant's daughter from the newspaper's website - the PCC negotiated a private letter of apology and the circulating of an internal legal warning, setting out the complainant's request that no further pictures of her daughter be published, even if supplied by her father.
