Got my decision letter today after MR. I was successful. However, the cover letter says I failed?

Hi,

I had a PIP award for a few years from 2018 to January 22nd this year, when my telephone assessment scored me 0 points across the board. 

I immediately went for a Mandatory Reconsideration, with help from the CAB. I got the decision letter today, scoring me 11 points for daily living, therefore awarding PIP. The scoring criteria, and the DM's remarks about my claim seem correct.

That's where it gets strange. The cover letter (page 1) says i've failed and not got an award, and there isn't any mention of the award date anywhere, and I assumed I would have got backpaid to the 22nd January - when it stopped. I did get a payment from DWP, for....1day (£8.53). Has anyone else had this happen?
