Corrections and clarifications

An obituary of the former Observer editor Donald Trelford (28 January, Journal, p6) said he appointed Geoffrey Lean as the first environment correspondent on a national newspaper; in fact Jeremy Bugler preceded Lean in the role at the Observer from 1971-77, and there were journalists on other papers who held this title too. Also, the first midweek edition of the Observer was published in the spring of 1989, rather than in 1990.
