From the Daily Mail (for some reasons there were two separate corrections pages published today)


An article on Wednesday said that the communications regulator Ofcom’s budget for 2012/13 is more than £140m and that it has a staff of nearly 1,000. We have been asked to point out that the budget for this financial year is £121.4m and that it employs 780 people. Ofcom denies using savings to offset the effect of public sector cuts.

Richard III

An overnight review of Richard II at the Donmar Warehouse last week praised Ben Turner for his performance as Bolingbroke and Michael Grandage for his six-year stint as the theatre’s artistic chief. In fact, Bolingbroke was played by Andrew Buchan, and Mr Grandage has been at the Donmar for ten years.

Fulham Football Club

Fulham reached the Europa League final in 2010, not 2009, as we incorrectly stated in Sports Agenda last week.

Health Lottery

Last Sunday’s Financial Mail said a judicial review called for by National Lottery operator Camelot into the Gambling Commission’s decision to license Richard Desmond’s Health Lottery will begin on July 11. In fact it is only the application for a review  that will be heard. We apologise for this mistake.

Travel last week mentioned the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. This is an international cultural event distinct from the National Eisteddfod of Wales, which is held in different places each year and this August will  be at the Vale of Glamorgan.
