Sun publishes - but buries - two clarifications

The Sun have published two tiny clarifications this week.

First, on Monday, this one about Lou Al-Chamaa which appeared on page 18:

We have been asked to make clear Lou Al-Chamaa, singer Leona Lewis's ex-boyfriend, did not demand a seven-figure payoff from the singer as we reported on July 9. We are happy to set the record straight.

Today, on page 22, Jessie Wallace:

Actress Jessie Wallace has asked us to point out that while she used a voice coach preparing to play Coronation Street star Pat Phoenix in a BBC film about the soap, she did not have a voice coach on set, filming was not stopped and producers never considered giving her fewer lines as we reported on July 22.

We apologise for any distress caused.

However, at time of writing, if you search the Sun's website for 'Lou Al-Chamaa' or 'Jessie Wallace', neither clarification appears in the results. It's almost as if they're trying to pretend they never happened...
