WHY is ITV1+1 Mendip actually ITV1+1 Wales ?

Like many people I am curious why I get ITV1+1 Wales (distinguished by WALES local ITV news) on ITV1+1, but nobody seems to have answered WHY this is (see Untitled | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice somebody reply with the reason WHY ?

I've also noticed the Freeview on the Mendip transmitter' web page (https://ukfree.tv/shutdowndetail.php?tx=ST564488) implies it should be HTV West on 33 (PSB2; UHF Channel C54).

All my channels are from the Mendip Transmitter. I get standard HTV West on 3 and I'm sure I'm not the only one who receives ITV1+1 Wales on 33 from the Mendip Transmitter .

I read with interest the Crystal Palace Re-tune due 30th June 2018. However I am a little confused. Is the recommended Aerial type A / K from the retune, as shown on the How will the Crystal Palace (Greater London, England) transmission frequencies change over time?, or is it W only, as shown in Upcoming Freeview transmitter changes 2017 to 2020 ?

A lot of patrons of the Transmitter will already be set-up with A aerials, some with W and a few with K types already. Those with A or K may go to un-needed expense fitting out ready for the re-tune if W is not necessary.

(the How will the Crystal Palace (Greater London, England) transmission frequencies change over time? is above; Upcoming Freeview transmitter changes 2017 to 2020 is at Upcoming Freeview transmitter changes 2017 to 2019 )
