Complainant Name:
Mrs Sian Williams

Clauses Noted: 3, 5

Publication: Western Mail

Complaint:

Mrs Sian Williams complained to the Press Complaints Commission that an article about the death of her husband had been accompanied by photographs taken from her private Facebook profile and had included details that were intrusive and insensitive, in breach of Clause 3 (Privacy) and Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice.

Resolution:

Although the newspaper denied that there was a breach of the Code, the complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the removal of the images from the newspaper's image library.
