The Grid takes accuracy very seriously.
Our writers and editors do their very best to make sure that no factual mistakes ever make their way into the articles we publish online. If one ever does, though, our policy is to correct the article as quickly as possible and to note, with an asterisk, the change where it was made, as well as explain, at the foot of the article, what the initial error was. (If you click the asterisk, it will take you to that note explaining the correction.) All of our corrected articles are collected here; you can also subscribe to an RSS feed of all of our corrected articles. If you ever spot an error yourself, we want to know about it: please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
