Corrections and clarifications

• On 4 January, the Guardian and other news organisations prematurely reported that the US ​​actor Tanya Roberts had died the previous day. This was based on a statement from her publicist, who later retracted his announcement but said Roberts had been admitted to hospital. A news article and an obituary that had been published online by the Guardian were removed as a result. On 5 January, Roberts’ partner reported that she died ​in Los Angeles on the evening of 4 January​.​ We published a new article about the actor’s death and republished her obituary.

• An article about art given to public collections said: “… the archive amassed by [Barney] Bubbles, who died in 1983, is now owned by the nation”. The UK’s cultural gifts and acceptance-in-lieu schemes, which provided this information, have since clarified that only one particular archive of the designer’s work was donated, by Belinda Syme. The item also said Bubbles never signed anything he produced, when it should have said he rarely did so (Archive of punk and new wave designer Barney Bubbles given to the nation, 21 December, page 13).
