Ms Aileen Carney complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an article which she considered to have breached Clauses 3 (Privacy), 6 (Children), 9 (Reporting of crime) and 12 (Discrimination) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant objected to the publication of her name, and that of her daughter. She considered the disclosure of this information to have been intrusive.
