The Diary: Story went off the rails

Have your say

We appear to have had our lines crossed on Tuesday...

In the Diary of that day the story of Fortnum and Mason opening a new store nearer to Sheffield – two miles nearer – was told.

But I got East Coast confused with Midland Main and said the new store was at King’s Cross station – which is of course where you get off if you’re travelling from Doncaster to London on the East Coast line

The new store is actually at the refurbished St Pancras station which is, of course, where you arrive in the capital when you travel from Sheffield.

Apologies for that and thanks to Malcolm for his email pointing out the error. We are suitably chastened but pleased to offer him a platform for his views...(ouch)
