As an EDP reader writes in to apologise for apparently berating a woman he mistakenly thought was sat in his own car, we are asking you to admit to your honest mistakes.

Michael Duncum has written in today's EDP letters page to offer his apologies to a 'lady driver' to whom he caused 'considerable alarm' when he found her 'sitting in a car a bit like ours' in Morrisons' car park.

The letter has provoked discussion – and some merriment – on the internet, with some commending Mr Duncum for the steps he has taken to apologise, and others suggesting they have committed similar errors in the past.

Another told how her boyfriend had – apparently accidentally – held another girl's hand, in New Look
