The article, by Guy Patrick, claims:
Cops are throwing a ring of steel around tonight's live episode of Coronation Street over fears it has been targeted by AL-QAEDA.
They were tipped off that the ITV1 soap's historic 50th anniversary broadcast from Manchester could be hit by a terror strike.
It goes on to repeat several suspiciously vague quotes from suspiciously anonymous sources - including one from a Greater Manchester Police spokesman which doesn't really back-up the Sun's story:
"This is a public, high-profile event. The risk is consistent with the UK terror threat, which is currently severe."
But a named Greater Manchester Police spokesman, Supt Jim Liggett, is quoted elsewhere saying something rather different:
"I want to clarify that we have categorically not been made aware of any threat from Al-Qaeda or any other proscribed organisation.
"Quite simply, Granada approached GMP to inform us they were employing a private security firm to help ensure tonight's live programme went ahead without outside interference.
"As part of their operation they asked for police assistance and we agreed to deploy a very small number of officers and PCSOs to help patrol the set's perimeter fence.
"This small police operation will be paid for by Granada and will not cost taxpayers a extra penny.
"To reiterate there is no specific intelligence threat to Coronation Street or any such event. However, the UK threat level remains at severe and people are encouraged to be vigilant."
So a completely made-up 'exclusive' - as if that wasn't obvious before the Police's denial.
However, the Sun have managed to give tonight's live episode of Coronation Street a bit of free publicity and they might have sold some extra newspapers based on their scaremongering headline. In the end, that's probably all this front page ever intended to do.
