Erratum: Evidence for an intermediate-mass black hole in the globular cluster NGC 6624

Abstract : The paper ‘Evidence for an intermediate-mass black hole in the globular cluster NGC 6624’ was published in MNRAS, 468, 2114 (2017). When estimating the model-dependent minimum mass of the intermediate-mass black hole (IMBH) of 60 000 M⊙ in Section 5, we used the separation of 0.15 pc for PSR J1823−3021C from the globular cluster centre, as given in Peuten et al. (2014, see table 2 therein). Unfortunately, this value is incorrect and the correct separation is 0.34 pc based on the position given in Table 1 (also see Lynch et al. 2012). This correct distance measurement changes the result presented in Fig. 9 in the published version, and the modified figure based on the positions given in Table 1 is appended here. Note that this does not affect any other results presented in the paper, in particular, the IMBH mass estimation obtained through orbital dynamics given in Section 4.
