These cops don't play bagpipes!

Mistakes inevitably creep into even the best run publications but few corrections have the whimsical charm of the following, spotted in the latest edition of the local paper that serves my seaside hideaway:

A fundraising concert by the band of Hampshire Constabulary, at Cowes Yacht Haven, did not feature bagpipes, as was stated in last week's Weekender.

No doubt the error was beyond the control of the sub who penned the correction, unlike the superfluous commas at either end of the yacht haven.
