The Daily Express is - sadly - not the newspaper it once was,
and such courtesies are so often a low priority when writing a
piece to a set length and deadline. However, it is a pity that
correct attribution wasn't made, since it is prominent in the
World Wide Words piece (see <
hot1.htm>). I've only just seen your message (I'm on digest) and
the Express site doesn't have an archive. If you will forward me
a copy of the piece, I'll bend the ear of the journalist
concerned, but don't expect a useful outcome ...
