Complainant Name:
Mrs Heather Woods

Clauses Noted: 1, 3

Publication: Daily Mirror


Mrs Heather Woods complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy) and Clause 3 (Privacy) of the Editors' Code of Practice, that an article about police officers who had been killed on duty had included a photograph of her, rather than her sister. She was also concerned that the use of the photograph represented an intrusion into her privacy.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper changed the photograph in the article and contacted the Press Association to make them aware that the image had been incorrectly marked.
