Headline: Ofcom probes 999 data blunder that could have had 'fatal consequnces' for millions of families
The story: Virgin media hasn't been keeping the 999 database up to date.
Telephone watchdog Ofcom has launched an urgent investigation after it was revealed that millions of families were put in danger because their phone company did not pass on their details to the emergency services.
A secret report prepared by Virgin Media, Britain's second biggest phone company, revealed that the addresses of more than a million of its customers were inaccurately listed on the 999 database used by police, fire and ambulance services. Some 310,000 were missing altogether.
Headline misses out the fact it's virgin and includes 'data blunder' presumably to make everyone think of "family allowance discs"
And unless "more than a million" is more than two million, it's not plural.
Oh yeah and the only reason it might be fatal is if someone rings but then falls unconscious and the 999 operator can't trace the correct address for the call. Serious, yes, but only risky to a very small %
