 "We incorrectly named GRB 060512 as 060513; we apologize for the
mistake and reiterate:

The 2-m Liverpool Telescope followed up GRB060512 (SWIFT trigger 209755)
approximately 20 min after the GRB trigger time. We confirm the UVOT
identification of a fading OT (Cummings et al GCN 5117)
 at:  13:03:05.8   +41:11:26.8   +\- 0.5 arcsec (J2000)

 Observations and analysis are ongoing.
