Complainant Name:
Mrs Antoinette McKenna

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Lurgan Mail

Complaint:

Mrs Antoinette McKenna complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which reported on her brother's injuries following a road traffic incident. The complainant was concerned that this included the publication of a photograph which she considered had been taken from her brother's Facebook account, and a number of inaccuracies. The complainant therefore considered that the article had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the sending of a private letter of apology to the complainant, as well as a charitable donation to a charity of her brother's choice.
