Firearms officers

Daily Mail - Sun, 03/27/2011 - 03:05
On November 7, 2010, we suggested that policemen AZ12 and AZ14 had deliberately quoted song titles in evidence to the inquest of Chelsea barrister Mark Saunders. Since then the Independent Police Complaints Commission has found this was not the case. We accept neither officer showed disrespect for the deceased, his family or the Court and apologise for any distress caused.

Lord Ahmed

Daily Mail - Fri, 03/25/2011 - 11:00
Further to our article of January 30 (Grooming of girls by Asian gangs fuelled by unhappy arranged marriages to cousins), Lord Ahmed has asked us to make clear that the phenomenon of Asian men preying on vulnerable young girls is not only by men from Pakistan, and nor are the victims always white. We are happy to set the record straight.

A whole pile of trouble! How did TV¿s Ruth Watson stop this family¿s Cornish mansion from crumbling to pieces? With drastic action ¿ and some very tough love...

Daily Mail - Fri, 03/11/2011 - 22:30
Georgina Le Grice is no stranger to horror stories, but she never expected to find herself in one when her family's picturesque 18th-century property was falling apart, and there was no money to save it.

Dr Narendra Sharma

Daily Mail - Wed, 01/26/2011 - 17:08
In our article of 30 March 2009, Doctor 'abused abortion patients', we reported allegations of sexual assault by Dr Sharma during a criminal trial, but did not report on the outcome. Dr Sharma was found not guilty of all charges and the trial judge stated that he could 'leave the Court without a stain on [his] character'. We are happy to set the record straight and apologise to Dr Sharma for the distress and embarrassment caused.

Lily Safra

Daily Mail - Tue, 01/11/2011 - 22:26
Further to an article about the murder of Edmond Safra, we wish to make it clear there was no intention to suggest that Mr Safra's widow Lily was involved in his death. We accept that there is no basis for such a suggestion and apologise for any distress caused.

Matt Lucas

Daily Mail - Thu, 12/16/2010 - 00:40
An article (March 1) ‘How Matt Lucas learned to laugh again’ caused great upset to Mr Lucas which we did not intend and regret. The article on Mr Lucas’ return to public life following the tragic death of Kevin McGee suggested he had ignored Kevin’s calls, became a virtual recluse, and hosted a birthday party to ‘move on’. We accept this was not the case and apologise to Mr Lucas.

Seymour Pierce Ltd

Daily Mail - Wed, 12/15/2010 - 19:16
ON November 17, 2010, we said Seymour Pierce Ltd had talks with rival firms regarding possible merger discussions following concerns over its capital position.

Cherie Blair

Daily Mail - Sun, 11/21/2010 - 22:00
On 26 November, in referring to a magazine's claim that Cherie Blair had attended a shooting party which included Saif Gaddafi, we suggested this was hypocritical and had outraged the families of victims of the Lockerbie bombing. We accept that Mrs Blair did not attend the shooting party and has never met Mr Gaddafi. We apologise for any embarrassment caused.

Police Pay

Daily Mail - Thu, 11/18/2010 - 19:17
An article on 14 May said that a report by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies had revealed that police are using dishonest methods to boost their pay. While the report found that police overtime spending has risen – and said the matter was 'ripe for review' - the suggestion that this was caused by dishonesty or 'tricks' came from the Mail, not the report. Officers can begin claiming overtime 30 minutes after the end of a shift. The claim that officers make arrests outside normal working hours to increase their payments has been aired previously, but we should have made clear that it is conjecture. We apologise for any confusion and the article has been amended.

An Apology

Daily Mail - Wed, 11/10/2010 - 08:35
Our story (Mail Online 24 October) about a toddler being accidentally pricked by dirty needles in a New York hospital wrongly suggested the girl might have to wait six months for a HIV test - we are happy to correct the error.

Cheshire adoption

Daily Mail - Tue, 11/02/2010 - 23:52
Our story on October 22 about a woman who abused the children she had adopted wrongly suggested that Cheshire East Safeguarding Children’s Board was responsible for overseeing the children’s adoption. We are happy to correct the error.

Sylvia Caplin

Daily Mail - Tue, 11/02/2010 - 02:33
An article about lifestyle expert Carole Caplin published on September 18 erroneously referred to her mother as the late Sylvia Caplin. We are happy to report that Sylvia Caplin is alive, well and continuing to work. Our apologies for these errors and the distress caused.

Lizo Mzimba

Daily Mail - Fri, 10/29/2010 - 09:06
An article on 29 October 2009 reported allegations made by a student website that BBC correspondent Lizo Mzimba had behaved in a drunken and inappropriate manner while researching a documentary about Cambridge University and that he had been humiliated by students as a result. We accept that Mr Mzimba has never worked on such a documentary, did not behave in a drunk or inappropriate manner and was not humiliated as claimed. We apologise for the distress and embarrassment caused.

Climate Clamp

Daily Mail - Sun, 10/24/2010 - 00:17
On May 16 an article ‘Mutiny in the Climate Camp’ reported accusations of hypocrisy over a decision to fly delegates to a conference in Bolivia. We cited critical quotes from an internal email but, in fact, these did not relate to the conference decision. Additionally we misattributed Facebook comments to campaigner Ben Hart and incorrectly said he had attended the conference. We apologise for these mistakes.

Louis Bacon and Moore Capital - an apology

Daily Mail - Thu, 09/30/2010 - 23:14
In an article ‘A hedge fund Godfather…’ of September 4 2010, we suggested that Mr Bacon was complicit in unethical behaviour within his hedge fund business, Moore Capital, and elsewhere, and as a result he is not the kind of person, and Moore Capital not the kind of business, that the Conservative Party should consider accepting financial donations from.

Louis Bacon and Moore Capital - an apology

Daily Mail - Thu, 09/30/2010 - 21:00
We are happy to confirm for the record that there is no substance whatsoever to the suggestion that Mr Bacon or Moore Capital are guilty of any unethical behaviour.

We're experiencing technical difficulties...

MailOnline is currently experiencing intermittent technical difficulties that have resulted in readers being unable to submit and read comments.

Asbestos

Daily Mail - Thu, 09/23/2010 - 23:15
In a controversial article, The Great Asbestos Hysteria (Mail, February 23), we said that according to the Health and Safety Executive, the risks from white asbestos products are ‘ insignificant’, and ‘arguably zero’ in the case of lung cancer. The HSE assessments related to specific levels of exposure to white asbestos fibres, not white asbestos products, and found a risk from higher levels. The article said that asbestos in UK schools is almost all white. According to the HSE, the more harmful brown asbestos was also frequently used in schools. The writer was in error in saying that the HSE had been forced to withdraw a series of commercials claiming that mesothelioma kills 4,500 a year. In fact, the advertisements were based on an estimate of 4,000 deaths from all asbestos-related disease.

Anna Begum

Daily Mail - Thu, 09/09/2010 - 14:27
This picture accompanying an article concerning the Olympics (November 7 2009) mistakenly showed the wrong woman. We are happy to clarify that the Anna Begum pictured had no connection with this story and we apologise to Ms Begum for the distress and embarrassment caused.
