The Coronation Street video saga ended yesterday with Granada promising to apologise, but escaping a fine.The Independent Television Commission ruled the television company was wrong to market Raquel and Curly's honeymoon as "only on video" - three months before it was actually shown on television.

The pounds 14.99 video sold more than 750,000 copies, making Granada an estimated pounds 10m, but there were hundreds of complaints when Coronation Street: The Cruise was shown on ITV in March. The company is to send letters of apology to complainants, enclosing a free copy of the Coronation Street 35th Anniversary book - priced at pounds 14.99 Marianne Macdonald
