News Group Newspapers, the publisher of the Sun, has apologised in the High Court to former Cabinet Office Minister, Tom Watson MP. The Sun alleged in April 2009 that Mr Watson had been a party to the Damian McBride and Derek Draper plot to smear the Conservatives and that Mr Watson had lied when he denied his involvement. The Sun has now accepted these allegations were entirely untrue and has agreed to pay substantial damages to Mr Watson.
