Just because it spell cheques doesn't mean the headline makes sense!

The Belfast Telegraph’s online headlines can be cryptic. This example has been up on the site since 8 September, and still listed on the front page with “easy” instead of “ease”.

Belfast Telegraph online headline - Airport scanners could easy liquid controls

Perhaps the online editors are distracted by the endless pictures of bikini-clad women illustrating stories - today it’s a story about a study showing that “vitamin D produced by the action of the sun on the skin may help improve survival for patients with skin and bowel cancer”.

By the way, belfasttelegraph.co.uk was named News Website of the Year at the 2009 Coca Cola Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Press and Broadcast Awards. And I’ll hold my hands up to admit that this blog has far to go before it achieves perfect spelling and grammar.

Update - now fixed.
