From the Mail on Sunday

Terra Firma Capital Partners

Financial Mail said companies owned by private equity firm Terra Firma Capital Partners Ltd were among those said to be delaying payment to small suppliers. In fact, The Garden Centre Group’s payment terms were introduced before its acquisition by Terra Firma this year. Terra Firma has not owned EMI since February 2011 and has not yet acquired the Four Seasons health care group. We apologise for these mistakes.

[It’s really not clear which article this correction is talking about, so I have no idea whether or not it has been corrected.]

Alan Holmes and Daniel Morgan

An article about the Brink’s-Mat robbery mentioned a policeman called Alan ‘Taffy’ Holmes who shot himself after a corruption investigation. We mistakenly published a picture of a different Alan Holmes, a civilian police employee who was murdered in an unrelated crime.

We would also like to make clear that the murdered private detective Daniel Morgan had never, in fact, been a police officer.

[The article no longer mentions Alan Holmes or contains a picture of him, but the comments contain someone pointing out their error. The article still describes Daniel Morgan twice as an ex-policemen.]
