Complainant Name:
Ms Claire Whitely

Clauses Noted: 1, 5, 10

Publication: Daily Mail


Ms Claire Whitely complained about three articles that reported on the death of her daughter, under Clause 1 (Accuracy), Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) and Clause 10 (Clandestine devices and subterfuge) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

The complainant was concerned about the publication of photographs which had been taken outside an inquest hearing, as well as a number of the claims about the events which led to her daughter's death.


The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the photographs in question and a donation to the mental health charity MIND.
