• A report based on Office for National Statistics estimates of the percentage of lesbian, gay or bisexual people in different areas across the country (First gay map of UK shows surprise rural population hotspots, 20 April, page 15) said “county-by-county data puts rural Devon slightly ahead of East Sussex, home to Brighton and Hove”, citing figures of 1.3% for Devon and 1.1% for East Sussex. In fact the data for East Sussex excluded the unitary authority of Brighton and Hove, which the ONS counted separately from the rest of the county, and where the figure was 4.8%.

• Antidepressant prescriptions cost the NHS about £800,000 a day; the writer of a letter in Friday’s paper accidentally gave the figure as £800m (Prince Harry shows how NHS psychiatric services could move on, 20 April, page 32).

• Because of an editing error, a front-page report (Lives at risk if Tories cut aid, Gates warns, 20 April) said “Labour joined forces with [Bill] Gates to say that [Theresa] May wanted to cut the £12bn budget”. To clarify: Gates did not say that May wanted to cut the aid budget; he simply set out his views on the potential consequences of doing so.
