Sgt Paul Champion

The picture caption accompanying ' How first a marriage then a political career were ended' (22 January 2011) incorrectly identified the plain-clothes policeman appearing in the picture between Mr Johnson and his wife, as DC Paul Rice, who it was alleged had an affair with Mrs Johnson. In fact the picture was of Sergeant Paul Champion who had no involvement whatsoever, and we apologise to him for our error and the distress this caused to him and his family.
