A man, representing a woman who had been injured whilst climbing in the Cairngorms, complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published inaccurate information relating to the incident and the injuries suffered in breach of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice. He was further concerned that the coverage was intrusive and distressing for the climber in breach of Clauses 3 (Privacy) and 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock).


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated amendments to the online article and the publication wrote privately to the climber.
