Lies, damned lies etc

The reports are very clear "computer modelling suggested that between 135 and 270 women may have had their lives shortened."

NB key words: 'modelling', 'suggest', 'may', 'between'

BBC News front page headline "Breast scan error 'shortened 270 lives' "

Epic fail by BBC headline writers. More what you'd expect from the Sun
