From the Daily Mail

Occupy London

In common with other newspapers, an article in October said that police thermal images showed nine out of ten tents in the Occupy London protest camp were empty at night.

We are happy to clarify that this information – backed up by subsequent thermal images taken by the Daily Mail – was based on comments by Councillor Matthew Richardson and an informed police source.

An article last week said that A4e has been appointed by the Skills Funding Agency to run prison education programmes in London and the east of England.

We have been asked to clarify that, while A4e are the preferred bidders, contracts will not be awarded until the summer.

From the Mail on Sunday

Dominic Raab

An article on January 30, 2011, suggested that Dominic Raab MP behaved  as a sexist bully in a previous job as an office manager. We accept that our allegations were unfounded and we apologise to Mr Raab for the damage, embarrassment and offence caused.

Katia Elizarova

Regarding Live magazine’s article last Sunday, ‘The Russian who’s lording it up’, we would like  to make clear that Katia Elizarova is not, and has not been, engaged in an affair with Leon Max. She is a fashion model and actress contracted to represent  Mr Max’s clothing business.

[Currently, the article doesn’t make that claim, but it’s not hard to see how someone could reach that conclusion from what the article says]


On February 26 we said police were investigating claims that staff at the employment firm A4e  had stolen ‘Government vouchers’ intended to  buy clothing to help unemployed people  going for job interviews. We would like to make  clear that any vouchers  were purchased by A4e  and not provided by the Government.

Jochen Rindt

Live magazine said last week that Formula 1 driver Jochen Rindt never won a championship. In fact he won posthumously in 1970 after his tragic death at Monza near the end of the season.

A story last week referred to Lake Windermere. The correct name is simply Windermere.
