Complainant Name:
A woman

Clauses Noted: 1, 3, 9

Publication: Manchester Evening News


A woman complained, through a representative, that the newspaper had identified her in breach of Clause 9 (Reporting of crime) of the Editors' Code of Practice. She was further concerned that the newspaper had published information which was both inaccurate, in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy), and intrusive in breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Code.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper obscured the photograph of the complainant on its online article so she could no longer be associated with the crime being reported on.
