How does The London Economic deal with corrections?

The London Economic prides itself on transparency, openness and accessibility. We often report on breaking news stories or complex unfolding situations. We do our utmost to ensure all information is accurate and verified. In breaking news our reports can sometimes change as new information comes forward. In other cases, new information can come forward after publication. Following advice from NewsGuard, who aim to restore trust in journalism, all corrections will be marked at the end of each article. This helps to inform the reader about how the information was changed. Depending on the situation this may be called a correction, update or editor’s note.
