Prince Harry

A spokesman for Prince Harry has asked to point out that the Prince  was not drunk at the street party in Belize pictured last weekend, as may have been suggested by our headline.

The Prince sampled local rum, a cocktail and fruit wine but did not drink five beers as suggested.

[Two possibilities for the correct story here. This one still talks about Harry drinking five types of local beer. This one used to say that, but no longer does. It think the second one was published on the correct date]

Manchester United

Sport last week said Manchester United had last played Athletic Bilbao  in 1957 and lost. In fact, although United lost 5-3 in the first leg, they won 3-0 at home and therefore won the tie on aggregate.

Pensions

Financial Mail said last week that savers with money purchase pensions have to buy an annuity on retirement. In fact, draw-down can be an option.

[Note: For reasons that I don’t understand, there are two sets of corrections dated 20th October 2011]

Muntjac Deer

An article on Monday claimed that muntjac deer cause 42,000 road accidents a year. In fact, this is the number of accidents caused by all deer and not just the muntjac.

Sir Alex Ferguson

Due to a production error between editions, some copies of Tuesday’s Daily Mail ran comments by Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson on the back page turning directly to quotes from Leeds chairman Ken Bates inside. We apologise for any confusion caused.
