On 14 June we inaccurately referred to Mr Mardas's involvement with the Beatles' company, Apple Electronics Limited.

Mr Mardas was not an employee of this company but a director and shareholder. He was not sacked by Apple Electronics but resigned his directorship in May 1971, retaining the shareholding until he gave it to Apple Corps some years later.

We accept that he did not claim to have invented electric paint, a flying saucer or a recording studio with a "sonic force field" or cause his employers to waste money on such ideas.

We apologise to Mr Mardas for these errors."
