Elliot Morley

An article on August 7 said the former MP Elliot  Morley, who was jailed for his role in the MPs expenses scandal, was said to have been roughed  up by a fellow prisoner, frogmarched to his cell and forced to hand over a £3,000  Rolex watch. We quoted sources at Ford Prison. In fact, Mr  Morley suffered only a minor theft when his room key and ID card were snatched from his lanyard. He has never owned  a Rolex. There was no ‘lockdown’ of the jail.

Radio Luxembourg

Last week we said the late Sir Jimmy Savile started in 1958 at Radio Luxembourg, a pirate radio station. In fact, the station was licensed by the Grand  Duchy of Luxembourg although some have called it a pirate station because listening in  the UK was technically unauthorised under the Wireless Telegraphy Act.
