Michael Middleton

In last week’s paper we referred to the Duchess of Cambridge’s father Michael as ‘a former airline pilot’.

In fact he was a British Airways aircraft dispatcher.

Caroline Wozniacki

Early editions of last week’s paper ran an article saying that Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki had won the 2009 US Open.

In fact she was beaten in that final. The report was corrected for later editions.

Richard Ward & James Pryce

Last Sunday’s article ‘Kate’s crimpers go to war‘ may have left the impression that Richard Ward, proprietor of the Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa salon in Chelsea, was jealous of James Pryce, a former employee, who styled the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair on the day of the Royal Wedding. The article might also have suggested that Mr Ward was trying to capitalise on the salon’s Royal links. We accept that Mr Ward has always given full credit to Mr Pryce for his work and that Mr Ward behaved in a totally proper manner with regard to any publicity before the Royal Wedding. We apologise for any embarrassment caused.

English Premier League Managers

Last week we said there were only four English Premier League football managers – Neil Warnock, Harry Redknapp, Roy Hodgson and Alan Pardew. In fact, Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was born in Barnsley but, in football, is considered to be Irish because, with an Irish father, he opted to play for the Republic of Ireland and won 57 caps.

Green Stealth Taxes

On September 18 and on October 29 we said the Government’s ‘green stealth taxes’ are costing families an average of £200 a year – an increase of 15 – 20 per cent on typical domestic power bills. In fact Ofgem estimates that environmental costs account for 7 per cent, or £100, of the average domestic power bill.

Duchess of Cambridge

Last week we incorrectly referred to The Queen as the Duchess of Cambridge’s mother-in-law. Her Majesty is, of course, the Duchess’s grandmother-in-law.

M5 Motorway Accident

Regarding our report of last weekend’s M5 motorway accident, there have been four motorway crashes in which 13 died, most recently near the Severn Bridge in 1995. Britain’s worst road accident was in North Yorkshire in 1975 when a coach went off a bridge killing 33.
