Complainant Name:
Annabelle Fuller

Clauses Noted: 3, 10

Publication: The Sunday Times

Complaint:

Annabelle Fuller complained to the Press Complaints Commission with the authorisation of Alexandra Phillips. The complainant was concerned that the newspaper had wrongly linked Ms Phillips with allegations of racism and had relied on information obtained from Facebook that was the subject of a police investigation. The complainant alleged a breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) and Clause 10 (Clandestine devices and subterfuge) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

The newspaper did not accept that the Code had been breached but the complaint was resolved when, as a gesture of goodwill, the newspaper amended the online article to remove Ms Phillips' photograph and any mention of her.
