This has to be one of the best newspaper corrections for some time. It appeared in today’s P&J and read as follows:
We have been asked to point out that Professor Ashley Mowatt is 66, not 65, as reported in Saturday's Press and Journal. His daughter Jill Mowatt is a journalist in Aberdeen, not Leeds, her sister Catriona works at Strathclyde University, not Stirling University, and her brother, Craig, is a doctor in Dundee, not Glasgow.
