Clarification: Apology to Renate Spickenreuther

ON 5 July 2016 we published an article which incorrectly reported a family dispute over the burial of businessman Peter Hanson, wrongly referred to Mrs Renate Spickenreuther as his “mistress” and inaccurately said she had launched legal proceedings demanding to be buried in the same grave as Mr Hanson against the wishes of his family.

We now know this was untrue and apologise to Mrs Spickenreuther for the distress and embarrassment caused.
