From the Daily Mail


An article on prostate cancer on Tuesday quoted an expert saying that radiation therapy Cyberknife is only available in one private UK centre.

In fact the Cyberknife treatment for prostate cancer is available at two private centres.

Cyberknife is also offered at three major NHS hospitals although not yet for prostate cancer.

Overseas Prisoners

A headline in yesterday’s paper wrongly suggested that no overseas prisoners had been deported.

As the article itself made clear, the correct position is that the UK has not completed any new prisoner transfer agreements with foreign countries in the last eighteen months

[The headline on this story on the Mail web site has been edited to reflect this correction. The HTML <title> tag still contains the original (incorrect) headline “Ken Clarke admits not a single overseas prisoner deported since coalition came to power”. The HTML <meta> description tag contains the slightly different text “Ken Clarke admits single overseas prisoner deported coalition came power”. I assume that’s a typo]
