Complainant Name:
Mr Simeon Ewing

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

Mr Simeon Ewing complained to the Press Complaints Commission under the terms of Clause 1 (Accuracy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, about the inclusion of his photograph in an article about alcohol and football.

While the complainant was a proud supporter of the Scottish national team, he objected to the suggestion that he was the type of fan who engaged in "epic booze-ups".

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated a charitable donation to Children's Ministry Ukraine, a letter of apology and the removal of the photograph from the online article.
