Yorkshire puddings

There were red-faces at Virgin.net today after a vulture-eyed Reg reader spotted a curious picture accompanying a city guide to Leeds.

The city guide, as it happens, coincided with those destinations served by Virgin Trains, another one of Sir Richard Branson's enterprises.

Snag is, one of the pictures was of Leeds Castle, a former palace of Henry VIII and...around 250 miles south of the West Yorkshire city.

For Leeds Castle is near the village of Leeds in Kent. Leeds, on Virgin's train route, is in West Yorkshire.

The images on Virgin.net's site have been removed. ®
