In the feature "Fiona hangs up her studs" (The Independent Magazine, 6 January), we said that poet Fiona Pitt-Kethley had been sacked by her latest publisher. We wish to make clear that her publisher axed her unpublished collections and those of 13 other poets when it closed its poetry list. Miss Pitt- Kethley asks us to say her books have all enjoyed respectable sales and her two most recent had both favourable and unfavourable reviews.

Miss Belinda Thompson and Mr Charles Burgess

Our feature "Ring of truth" (The Independent Magazine, 10 February) photographed couples buying rings at Hatton Garden. Regrettably an editorial error resulted in a picture of Belinda Thompson and Charles Burgess being given a caption about a different couple. We sincerely apologise to Miss Thompson and Miss Burgess.
