It was £ 350 million a week, not “£ 350 million a month”, which Boris Johnson and the Vote Leave campaign claimed in 2016 that they would return to the UK from Brussels (Brexit: The grim reality, 26 June, p31).
Chris Patten received the Order of Fellows of Honor in 1998, not 1989, as a title said (Reflections on the Death of Democracy, June 12, New Review, p9).
Location, location, location: an interview with Tracee Ellis Ross described Brown University as a “New York institution”; is in Providence, Rhode Island (‘I’m Excited to Aging’, June 26, Magazine, p. 8), while a travel article in the same section confused two points of frailell spots in suggesting Skomer Island of Pembrokeshire, but continuing to describe Puffin Island, opposite England (Call of the wild, p43). And in the news we put Beckenham in Kent; is in the London borough of Bromley (Touching image of the Johnson family stars in the show about loss and home, June 26, p13).
The time of Laura Muir’s victory in the women’s 1500m final at the UK Athletics Championships was 4: 12.91, not 4: 21.91 as we had (Neita and Azu altered the hierarchical order of the British sprint, 26 June, Sport, p13).
Two errors appeared in last week’s Hidden Histories supplement: Erasmus Darwin, whose house in Lichfield received a mention, was the grandfather of the naturalist Charles Darwin, not his father (Turn up for the books, p16); and we said that most stone circles in Britain date from the Bronze Age, when they are mostly Neolithic, and from the Early Bronze Age (Rocks of Ages, p22).
