Sun admits ‘Muslim yobs’ story was baseless

Pickled Politics reports that the Sun has apologised for the story that it published last October, accusing “Muslim yobs” of hounding four soldiers out of their house in Windsor. The Sun now says:

“Following our report ‘Hounded out’ about a soldiers’ home in Datchet, Berks, being vandalised by Muslims, we have been asked to point out no threatening calls were logged at Combermere Barracks from Muslims and police have been unable to establish if any faith or religious group was responsible for the incident. We are happy to make this clear.”

Even Mad Mel has been forced to (sort of) retract (scroll down to the bottom of the article).
