Corrections and clarifications

Corrections and clarifications column editor

• 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.”
