Send an invoice.
If it's a local paper, they do it all the bloody time. Which is why I never supply our local with sports images.
+1 for invoicing them.
And if they have genuinly given the impression that one of the photographer's took the image (or stated it as such), report them to the press complaints comission as well.
Send in Stix?
Send the boys round. (with an invoice, with strict payment terms)

Thanks for that cheery message thewilliam lol
i agree with invoicing them for a reasonable amount (not excessive) but also mentioning your copyright as you own the original image unless you waived the ownership with whoever they got your picture from. I have had similar issues in the past, not only with local press but with a international publisher who "forgot" to credit my images. I was lucky(ish) to win that time but the book was already on the shelves without my credit (before Pete starts to sweat, no it wasn't the EPZ book)
