Complainant Name:
Mr Roy Atkinson

Clauses Noted: 5

Publication: The Sun


Mr Roy Atkinson complained to the Press Complaints Commission about a report of the death of his wife, which he considered had intruded into his grief in breach of Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice.


The complaint was resolved after the PCC negotiated a private letter of apology from the newspaper and a donation to charity in memory of the complainant's wife.
