The Sun today issued an apology that combines aliens, Scientology and British tabloid wit to deliver a classic of the genre:

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.
