The Press Complaints Commission has upheld a complaint against the Scottish Sun after the paper printed pictures of Sir Chris Hoy’s family at a funeral.
The paper went ahead with the story despite Hoy’s uncle having told the photographer several times that his presence was unwelcome. The photographer then took pictures from the street and only left after again being told to do so.
The PCC upheld the complaint that a picture of the widow of Derek Hoy, Sir Chris’s uncle, had grossly intruded her privacy.
The newspaper published an apology for the distress in its Sunday edition, and said the funeral was newsworthy because of Sir Chris’s attendance.
