AN article published by The Northern Echo on May 22 (online) and May 23 (in print) regarding an application by bus driver Michael Gilbert to reduce his three-year driving ban following his involvement in a fatal collision in Darlington, said his family’s circumstances had changed due to his wife’s medical condition making it impossible for her to work or drive.

We are happy to make clear that his representative actually said her illness was making it increasingly difficult for her to work or drive. We apologise for the error.
