Hi All - yes there have been 3 very recent mapping teaching sessions in 
this area. I'm involved and had checked the edits to make sure that they 
were all sound, but missed some until a backup check tonight. I'm on 
it... although having some problems with the achavi service tonight so 
if anyone else wants to help please do. On the positive side you'll see 
a flurry of good edits in the area too I'm pleased to say... and the 
sessions have worked with both young people (teenage - that's where the 
issues lie) and some older people who barely knew how to use a computer
