BBC Surrey Gets It Wrong

Big confusion over at BBC News Surrey this evening.  They report a spate of burglaries in Woking but state that they took place in Horsell.

In fact not one of the burglaries listed in the story took place in Horsell.  The roads mentioned are in Goldsworth Park, Kingfield, Old Woking and St Johns.

I have sent a message to the BBC asking them to correct their error.

UPDATE - Had a call from Peter Stewart, News Editor at BBC Surrey whilst I was out today. Caught up with him at the Surrey County Council Have Your Say event this evening.  He apologised for the incorrrect information on the website but said that it came direct from a Surrey Police press release! Site has now been updated so burglaries are correctly listed as being in Woking. Only thing is Woking is now described as a "village"!
