Another Express error

On a smaller scale than the mass pay-outs, but it shows the Express invented a story about footballer John Terry:

In yesterday's paper we said that John Terry had spent £60,000 on buying champagne and cocktails to celebrate a team mate's birthday.

We now accept that Mr Terry did not spend any money in the hisky Mist Nightclub in Mayfair where he attended as a guest of one of his team mates.

We are happy to make the position clear and apologise to Mr Terry for any embarrassment caused by the article.

Once again it shows that being famous makes correcting stories much, much easier; this one only took a day.
