Mr Lee Anson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Take a Break

Complaint:

Mr Lee Anson complained to the Press Complaints Commission about the publication of an article which was, in his view, inaccurate and misleading in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The article was about the breakdown of the complainant's relationship, told from the perspective of his ex-partner. The complainant emphasised that he and his partner had not been together for over two years, and he also objected to the publication of his photograph.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the provision of a goodwill payment, and a letter of apology.
