Belfast Telegraph loses the will to edit

Belfast Telegraph masthead - Saturday evening (compact) final edition

Earth calling the Belfast Telegraph’s subeditor or whoever was in charge of page layout in their Saturday paper. Is there anybody there?

Belfast Telegraph article on International Space Station - spot the mistake in the bottom left

A full page exploring the ups and downs of the International Space Station. Borrowed as page filler from its sister paper, The Independent where Steve Connor is the science editor.

But what’s that down in the bottom left?

Reader offer obscuring the article text in the Belfast Telegraph

A Belfast Telegraph reader offer advert dropped on top of the article. Right on top. Completely obscuring the text of the article.

Does no one check the paper before it hits the news stands? Not the finest moment for Northern Ireland’s largest daily paper.
