MIB/Motor Insurer's Bureau

In our article ‘Insurance investigators accessed teen crash victim’s phone records’ (12 August 2013) we stated that the investigators worked for MIB, the Motor Insurer’s Bureau.

European migration

The Independent on Sunday article “So much migration puts Europe's dykes in danger of bursting” on 18 August asserted that in the year 2000 only about 0.1 per cent of EU citizens lived and worked in another EU country.

Ryanair

In Wednesday’s article “Low-fuel flights put lives at risk”, we reported that Ryanair  ‘restricted the amount of fuel [their aircraft carry] to the legal minimum’.  In fact, their pilots are permitted to carry 300kg over the minimum requirement and more in some circumstances.  Our report referred to a legal minimum fuel-reserve which aircraft must have on board: we should have made clear this is on departure and Ryanair complied with this take-off requirement. Ryanair disputes the report of the Spanish Civil Aviation Accident and Incident Investigation Commission into an incident in which one of its aircraft made an emergency landing with a portion of this fuel-reserve used by the time it touched down. We apologise for this confusion.

Labour grandees

In our article “Labour grandees warn Miliband to be more than a voice of protest” (14 April 2013), we wrongly identified John Prescott as one of those making criticisms of the Labour leadership, it was in fact David Blunkett. We apologise to Lord Prescott for our error.

Reporting of Kashmir victim

On Monday we reported that Tom Groves, whose sister Sarah was killed in Kashmir last week, had expressed concern over approaches to the family by The Sun newspaper.  A spokesman for The Sun has disputed this account and said the paper’s reporter acted properly and sensitively, having made the same approaches as other media organisations.

Trinity Mirror

In an article in last week’s Independent on Sunday (“Trinity Mirror executives need to face up to the murky past”) we said that a report gathered from former senior Mirror reporters was given to Trinity Mirror chief executive Simon Fox and chairman David Grigson.  Mr Fox and Mr Grigson have pointed out that they have not seen any such report and we are happy to acknowledge this and apologise to them.
