A spectacular typo and evidence, if it were needed, of the decline of the sub-editor. Caterer Phoebe Cripps was featured in the Suffolk Free Press in anrticle about her venture specialising in canapés and cocktails not, er well, you can see for yourself.  She has seen the funny side, tweeting “What could only be described as an unfortunate printing error…. #foodtruck #Suffolk #vintage #catering”.
