• Donald Tusk is the president of the European council, not the EU commission’s president as we said in a report (May seeks to ease tensions over Gibraltar, 4 April, page 1). The European commission president is Jean-Claude Juncker, and the president of the European parliament is Antonio Tajani.

• An article (Brexit may be just the crisis we need to cast off the status quo, 1 April, page 8) said that Iceland “is not … part of the single market”. To clarify: as a member of the European Economic Area, Iceland does participate in the EU’s single market, with exemptions for agriculture and fisheries policies.

• In the Birthdays column (3 April, page 29) we gave Doris Day’s age as 93. As we reported in a photo caption in later editions of the same paper (Happy 93rd – no, 95th – birthday Doris, 3 April, page 2), Day herself thought she was about to turn 93 until reporters who had found her birth certificate informed her at the weekend that she is two years older.
