Brian Arkins -- apology and correction

In yesterday's edition, we incorrectly published a photograph of Brian Arkins, pictured above, in connection with a report about a court case in which serious criminal convictions were recorded against John Patterson (54) of Mourne Road, Drimnagh, Dublin.

Our picture caption incorrectly described Mr Arkins as Mr Patterson. Mr Arkins has no connection whatsoever with either Mr Patterson or the court case in which Mr Patterson was prosecuted for the criminal offences in question.

We wish to draw our readers' attention to this error.

We apologise to Mr Arkins unreservedly for this mistake and for the distress that it has caused to him.
