Hi Scott,
It was raised with the NPG, as promised, at the time. They assured me they
would investigate immediately on the pages indicated as well as make a
random sampling of other pages on their site to see if it had happened

I'll re-raise this with them today and get back to you when I know any

Peace, love & metadata
