Corrections and clarifications
Accuracy is central to what what we do and every effort is made to ensure that what we publish is factual and correct. However, we don’t always get it right and factual mistakes and errors, where identified either by ourselves or readers, will always be corrected as soon as possible. We will highlight such corrections online and in print where appropriate.
All of our reporting is carried out under the auspices of IPSO’s Editors Code of Practice and the National Union of Journalists’ Code of Conduct.
