As far as apologies go, The Sun's is a wheeze.
Today, the newspaper extends apologies to... aliens.
So what did the little green men do to warrant this apology? Did the big lawyer in the sky send a strongly worded letter to the paper's editor. Did they threaten to invade planet Earth unless they were cleared of whatever slur the red-top had cast on their extra-terrestrial nation?
Nope, the paper is apologising to Martian-kind for linking them to Scientologists.
Here's the apology in full:
"In an article on Saturday headlined 'Flying saucers over British Scientology HQ', we stated "two flat silver discs" were seen "above the Church of Scientology HQ".
"Following a letter from lawyers for the Church, we apologise to any alien lifeforms for linking them to Scientologists."
Glad that's cleared up then.
