From the Daily Mail
[Note: For reasons that I don’t understand, there are two sets of corrections dated 20th October 2011]
The Daily Mail apologised in court yesterday for wrongly identifying, in a one-paragraph item in the Ephraim Hardcastle column, Lady Moore, the wife of Sir Roger Moore, as the subject of a Spectator column by Taki about a Swedish beauty who had courted rich men on the French Riviera in the 1950s.
We accepted that Lady Moore was not the person to whom Taki was referring and have agreed to pay damages and costs.
Commentary articles on 5 and 16 August referred to six individuals apprehended in France who were attempting to enter Britain in wheelie bins on a lorry as asylum seekers when they should have been described as illegal immigrants.
We are happy to set the record straight.
Yesterday’s article about the terminally ill cabbie who chose to be mummified said that the Channel 4 documentary about him had been screened on Monday.
In fact it will be shown next Monday.
