Together Trust

An inquest report about a student’s death in Tuesday’s paper was based on agency copy which said that she had received treatment from the Together Trust. In fact, the girl was treated by the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust in Gloucester. The Together Trust is a Cheshire-based children’s charity which was not involved.

An article in Monday’s sport pages said that France had beaten New Zealand in last year’s Rugby World Cup final. In fact New Zealand narrowly defeated France.

Carole Caplin

An article about Carole Caplin on 18 September 2010 ‘Carole’s £1m question: Will she tell all about Blairs’ sex secrets?’ suggested that Ms Caplin might reveal intimate details about Tony and Cherie Blair in a book for a substantial sum, which might lift the lid on their marriage and finish the Blairs. We accept that Ms Caplin would not disclose such matters and that there was nothing improper about massages she gave Mr Blair. We apologise to Ms Caplin.
