Editorial Processing: An Apology

To spare the blushes of those involved, allmediascotland will resist the temptation to identify the newspaper behind the following, rather quaint apology today: “The error was made during editorial processing of the story.” 

It concerns a report that claimed – inaccurately, as it turned out – that a senior official of the Scottish Police Federation had expressed personal doubts about a single national police force for Scotland.

His reservations were, in fact, about Scottish Labour's pledge to jail for at least six months anyone caught carrying a knife.
