The Vertex Locator (VeLo) is a silicon based particle detetor in the LHCb experiment. The testbeam data taken with 10 final production VeLo modules exhibited the effects of crosstalk. A method has been developed to correct the data for this effect. A large amount of crosstalk is seen in the data, suggesting that its cause is a combination of charge sharing in the readout cables and an offset in the sampling time of the readout cables.
