    This is why you should never read the Daily Mail - they can't even do basic maths.

    7 per second would be 604,800 per day.

    The article says there are 12,623 sold per day - which is 525 per hour, or 8.7 per minute, or 0.14 per second.

    I've started doing the math while reading the article, but you saved me some time :) The numbers looked wrong even without being highly skilled in numbers.
