Complainant Name:
Mr Lee Anson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Take a Break


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.


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