The Sun has apologised to Jonathan Laker, a security guard at Heathrow Airport, over a front page article which falsely alleged that Mr Laker had abused his position as a security guard by surreptitiously taking a naked scan of his female colleague. The Sun has now acknowledged that these allegations were untrue and indeed that words attributed to Mr Laker in the article were made up. As well as apologising, The Sun has agreed to pay Mr Laker £45,000 in damages together with his legal costs.
