The Daily Telegraph prints apology for ANZAC Day printing bungle

News Corp’s The Daily Telegraph has issued a small apology to readers in today’s paper, apologising for the error which led to two pages from rival The Sydney Morning Herald finding their way into yesterday’s edition.

The two papers share a printing press – a cost-saving measure – with The Daily Telegraph blaming a “production error”.

No further detail was given around what the exact error was, however The Daily Telegraph apologised for the inconvenience it caused.

The apology, on page two today, said:

An error occurred during the printing of the country editions of yesterday’s The Daily Telegraph.

As a result two pages from The Sydney Morning Herald were printed on page 18 and page 55.

Both papers share a printing facility in Sydney’s west and the error happened during the production process.

This was corrected for the later metro editions which reached Sydney. All steps will be taken to ensure such an error does not occur again.

We apologise for any confusion this caused.

Yesterday, observers and journalists alike took delight in the error on Twitter.
