MailOnline removes two-year-old photo from Euro 2012 article

Last week, MailOnline removed fake photos from articles about the 'Essex lion' and Tropical Storm Isaac after publishing them without appropriate checks on their accuracy.

In July, they removed a photo from an article about Polish football fans and Euro 2012:

A photograph depicting knives confiscated from Polish football hooligans has been removed from the article after we were informed that the photograph was taken in 2010 and was unrelated to Euro 2012. The article has also been amended to make it clearer to the reader that the images of the Polish police were taken during an operation ahead of the tournament.
