The Number apologises for BT comment

'Sorry'

Following our story "BT scores £40k win over The Number" earlier this week concerning an out of court settlement between the two companies, The Register has been asked to publish the following statement on behalf of The Number. We are happy to oblige

In the statement, The Number apologises for a comment that it made about BT and a charitable donation.

The statement reads: "In your news story 'BT Scores', William Ostrom of The Number said 'We tried to persuade them to donate the full £40,000 to charity, but they refused.' The Number UK Ltd would like state this is incorrect as no suggestion was made to BT that they donate the full £40,000 to charity. We offer an unreserved apology to BT." ®
