Complainant Name:
Ms Karen Crawford

Clauses Noted: 1, 5

Publication: The Scottish Sun


Ms Karen Crawford complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had breached Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) of the Editors' Code of Practice. The newspaper had published an article about a horse with narcolepsy. The complainant was a director of the charity which was caring for the horse, and she said that the article had contained a number of inaccuracies and did not treat the subject with sensitivity. She also complained that details on how to donate to the charity were not included.


The complaint was resolved directly between the complainant and the newspaper when a follow-up article about the charity was published.
