Three corrections from the Mail

Last week, the Mail published two clarifications and one apology.

First up, on 16 August, this about Lord Justice Sedley:

An article on March 30 attributed four controversial appeal decisions to Lord Justice Sedley. In fact all four judgments involved three Lord Justices. We are happy to clarify this.

Two days later, a clarification about Lionel Etherington:

On 18th May 2009 we published an article entitled '15 years after deserting her husband evicts his ex-wife" about Lionel Etherington. Mr Etherington has asked us to say that he only left after he believed his marriage had irretrievably broken down and, contrary to what his wife alleged, he did not have any 'secret second family', he did not father a child while still married to Mrs Etherington, and provided what financial support he could. He brought eviction proceedings on legal advice in order to enforce a court order for sale of the matrimonial home. Mrs Etherington is now back in the property and Mr Etherington is happy that matters have now been resolved.

And one day after that, an apology to Cherie Blair:

An article of 28 June headlined ‘How the Blairs have become ships that pass in the night’ reported that, for the first time in their marriage, Cherie and Tony Blair had not arranged a family summer holiday together this year and that Mrs Blair had met the Pope for solace during a recent holiday in Italy. We accept that they had booked a summer holiday before the date of our article and, in fact, she did not meet the Pope on this occasion. We apologise for any embarrassment caused.

    Dear, dear dear, the Mail can't even get its corrections right; it's Lords Justice, not Lord Justices
