Cor­rec­tions and clar­i­fi­ca­tions

The Guardian - - JOURNAL | LETTERS -

• An ar­ti­cle said that po­lice in­ves­ti­gated claims of breaches of elec­tion spend­ing rules “in 30 con­stituen­cies, but only be­hav­iour in three seats met the high bar for prose­cu­tion”. The po­lice in­ves­ti­gated 30 in­di­vid­u­als, not con­stituen­cies, and it was the be­hav­iour of three peo­ple in the Thanet South seat, not in three seats, that re­sulted in prose­cu­tion (Bri­tain is a coun­try where elec­tions can still be bought, 12 Septem­ber, page 32). • We mis­named Hur­ri­cane Ka­tia as Katie in an ar­ti­cle in Satur­day’s paper (Florida braced as 150mph winds leave trail of de­struc­tion, page 6). A high­lighted quote was wrongly at­trib­uted to Don­ald Trump. It was the gov­er­nor of the Turks and Caicos Is­lands, John Free­man, who warned re­main­ing is­lan­ders to “hun­ker down, stay where you are. No­body can get to you – peo­ple are, for a lit­tle while, on their own.”
