Correction: Two people within headline surnames incorrectly swopped

Within the headline of Zephaniah McLeod has been charged with the murder of Jacob Billington following Birmingham Stabbings the names of both Mcleod and Billington had been incorrectly swopped.

On the 23rd February 2021 at 00:25 hours we received a request to amend this. After receiving the following message

You’ve mentioned in your article regarding the knife man in Birmingham and have incorrectly used the surname of the murderer as the victim – you referred to Jacob as Jacob McLeod rather than Jacob Billingham. This is being mentioned all over Facebook. I would suggest you read the article before publishing it in the public domain.

We have now amended this and would apologise for any offense this may have caused.
