Scenic - Clocked mileage?

After watching Watchdog tonight, i decided to have a look at my Scenics MOT history, by going to, just out of interest...

I bought the car in Jan 2010 from a car dealers that have been there for 27 years, They advertise all cars HPI'd, so you'd assume the necessary checks had been done.

However, on checking the MOT history, it looks like the mileage in 2007 was 39,862 miles, but in the 2008 MOT it was recorded at27,786 Miles...

...obviously gone backwards?

It looks to me like an obvious clocking -

As the garage say they HPI all their cars, should this have been picked up by them and therefore advised on sale?

How likely is it that the MOT has a typo?

The car is a 54 plate so the 1st MOT is the 2007 one.

It now has 62k on the clock.

Any advice is most welcome...very worried now
