Neil Morrissey

A court heard last week that the Daily Mail had withdrawn allegations published in an article on 19 March last year that actor Neil Morrissey had been banned from a bar for rowdy, drunken behaviour.

The paper apologised and agreed to pay damages and costs.

[I can’t find this story on the Mail web site. I assume they have removed it for legal reasons. This story was was also the subject of one of the earliest Corrections and Clarifications columns back in October]

[Note: For reasons that I don’t understand, there are two sets of corrections dated 21st October 2011]

Neil Morrissey

An article on 19 March suggested that actor Neil Morrissey had been banned from a French bar for drunken behaviour and encouraging binge-drinking, and that his property was worth £500,000.

While we were shown a poster which indicated that he had been barred, we now accept that none of these allegations are correct. We also accept that local property valuations were overstated. We apologise to Mr Morrissey.

Gluten-Free Bread

An article on 19 July reported, in common with other newspapers, that the NHS paid £32.27 per loaf of gluten-free bread for patients with coeliac disease.

In fact, this was the price for an average prescription of several loaves; the price per loaf was around £2.82.

Solar Power

A recent Moneymail article stated that generators of solar power receive 3.1p for every kilowatt hour of energy that they export to the national grid. In fact the tariff, linked to RPI, is 3.1p per kWh for 50pc of the total generated.
