In this article by Paul Elliott and colleagues (18 August 2001), we inadvertently published a map of Great Britain that included the Isle of Man. We should have known better. The Isle of Man is not part of Great Britain (or the United Kingdom); it is a Crown dependency. But it does have a landfill site, according to a general practitioner from that island, who kindly alerted us to our geographical inaccuracy.
