A woman

Clauses Noted: 3, 6

Publication: The Star (Sheffield)

Complaint:

A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission under Clause 3 (Privacy) and Clause 6 (Children) of the Editors' Code of Practice about an article concerning a magistrates' court hearing of the boy's father, a parental rights campaigner facing allegations of vandalism, in which her young son was named. The complainant said that the article had unnecessarily intruded into her child's privacy.

Resolution:

The matter was resolved when the newspaper provided an undertaking that it would not in any future story concerning the boy's father use the complainant's son's name.
