Clauses Noted: 1, 2, 5, 6, 9

Publication: The Sun


A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission, on behalf of her mother, that a number of articles had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy), Clause 3 (Privacy), Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock), Clause 6 (Children) and Clause 9 (Reporting of Crime) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The complainant was concerned that the newspapers had published articles about her brother which made unnecessary and distressing references to their mother, intruding into her private life.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated the removal of the articles from the newspaper's website.
