Complainant Name:
Mr Mike Doherty and Miss Zoe Lee

Clauses Noted: 1, 5, 12

This complaint was originally made to the PCC. As the PCC closed on 8 September the complaint was resolved by the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) under PCC procedures. IPSO is the new independent regulator of the newspaper and magazine industry.

Mr Mike Doherty and Miss Zoe Lee complained to the Press Complaints Commission, under Clause 1 (Accuracy), Clause 5 (Intrusion into grief or shock) and Clause 12 (Discrimination) of the Editors' Code of Practice, about an article about the deaths of Miss Lee's neighbours.


The complaint was resolved on the basis of amendments to the article, which was published online only.
