The 'perils of live text'

From the BBC's live budget coverage today:
1306 Sorry to those of you who have not refreshed the page recently - the estimate of government borrowing for this year is £175bn - NOT £275bn - sorry - the perils of live text!
And a little later on Martin Belam pointed me to this correction issued by Reuters on Twitter:
"CORRECTED - Darling to introduce new tax rate of 50% from next April on incomes over £150k (not 100k) #budget http://r.reuters.com/myb44c"
