The Planck Early Release Compact Source Catalogue includes 26 sources with no obvious matches in other radio catalogues (of predominantly extragalactic sources). Here we present observations made with the Arcminute Microkelvin Imager Small Array (AMI SA) at 15.75 GHz of the eight unmatched sources at δ > +10°. Of the eight, four are detected and are associated with known objects. The other four are not detected with the AMI SA, and are thought to be spurious.
