Yes the BBC article now says

Quote:
The team are not thought to be the first to have made the perilous journey.
In the Times article it says that "FIVE British adventurers claimed yesterday ......"

so no lawsuits against the Times!!!

I read the Daily Telegraph on the plane to Lithuania on Saturday and that had quite a large spread on it, and some of the claims confused me! - so its nice to see at least the BBC have corrected their article!

Anyway.... well done everybody

Jools

The title was also corrected. The original was "Bear sets Arctic record" but the revised title is "Bear completes Arctic journey".

I was unable to access the Daily Telegraph article. I would appreciate it if someone would email it to me at lovey123@shaw.ca
