This newspaper made a most unfortunate mistake with its front page headline
Sometimes when you make a mistake in a newspaper it’s so small you can get away with it. And sometimes this happens.

Wow. It’s real. This’ll be featured in newspaper sub-editing courses for years. And available at all good newsagents near you today, folks. pic.twitter.com/JS8YpuedVW

Be fair. This works almost perfectly if the story is that a 100ft (with typo) tidal wave is surging along the path of the River Cam.

We would like to sincerely apologise for the technical problem that caused the main headline to not appear on the Cambridge edition, although the correct one was printed on the Cambourne News

Well, that’s alright then.
And if you go to the website it autoplays a video which is just a black screen with the words "Video to go here" written across the front.

Quite astonishing. So no revise sub, no stone sub, no proof readers, nobody who cares enough about the paper to glance at PAGE ONE before it goes out?!

All of the above. Gotta love Trinity Mirror's redundancy policy.

And just in case …
Am I the only one who doesn’t understand?

They've gone to print with a 'template' headline. Essentially "insert headline here" on the front of their newspaper.
