This newspaper’s epic headline fail is a copy editor’s worst nightmare


Ever write something just as a place-holder just so you could come back to it later? [witty example here].

A local paper in the UK had what could honestly be a copy editor’s anxiety dream come to life.

To be fair, “100 pt splash heading here” sounds like a major scoop.

The paper offered an apology for the error.

The headline was actually meant to be “£2m for ‘sex lair’ school.” Next time perhaps.
