Star forced to apologise - again

The Star has apologised for the story about Prince William 'wrecking' an RAF plane. Two weeks seems a long time to correct something so obviously bogus, but then you get the feeling that had it been someone less important, it wouldn't have happened even that quickly.

We have been asked to make clear that, although the plane's engine had to be stripped and was out of action for a short time for investigation, no damage was done by the prince and the plane was not 'wrecked'. We apologise to Prince William for any embarrassment our article may have caused.

Note that this was on page 2, the original all over the front, and that all the details in this apology were in the original story. So the question remains - what the hell was this (non) story doing on the front page in the first place?
