Correction: Alison Halford

In commenting, on 23 July, on the settlement of Alison Halford's discrimination case against the police, we said that one of the Equal Opportunities Commission's officials had asked to be taken off the case largely because of personal difficulties with Miss Halford. We regret that this statement, which was published as a result of a misunderstanding, was incorrect and apologise for any resulting embarrassment.
