United Kingdom Union Flag gaffe causes council flap in Manchester

A misprinted Union Flag which was flown in Manchester on Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day has been removed.

Manchester City Council has apologised for the blunder which saw the flag flying over the city's Central Library, close to its Cenotaph.
