The Star issued a swift apology to their ludicrous 'story' where they admitted:
'We made no attempt to check the accuracy of the story before publication'.
And they made no attempt to use common sense either.
In court today:
Clare Kissin, counsel for Express Newspapers, said: "Express Newspapers Ltd accepts that the allegations made against Rockstar Games are untrue. The defendant apologises for the upset and damage caused."
Meanwhile, Roy Greenslade reports that Express Newspapers made a loss of £15m last year and, as a result, Richard Desmond has increased the price of both the Express and the Star.
He expects people to pay 30p for the dreadful Daily Star now.
