Michael Shone: An Apology

In our articles ‘Residents are urged to make votes count in local elections’ (April 7, 2011) and ‘Candidates change allegiance in 2011 Chichester District Council Elections’ (May 4, 2011), we reported that former Chichester District Councillor, Michael Shone, would not be standing in the recent local elections.

We would like to make clear that Mr Shone did, in fact, stand in the election, and apologise to him for this error. We regret that the matter was not clarified at an earlier stage.
