UPDATE: Were the papers right to turn their comments off on these stories? – take the poll
The two Richard Desmond-owned newspapers both issued short, almost identical stories.
“We now recognise that such a suggestion is absolutely untrue and that Kate and Gerry are completely innocent of any involvement in their daughter’s disappearance,” they both stated.
Another similarity, both newspapers turned the comments system off on the online versions of these stories ‘for legal reasons’.
