U.K. paper apologizes for saying female musician slept with DJ

U.K. tabloid the Daily Mirror apologizes for saying that a female musician was one of many women who supposedly slept with a well known BBC DJ:

Following our article of 1 May 2012 in which it was reported that Lyn Paul of the New Seekers was a “conquest” of Tony Blackburn, Ms Paul has contacted us to say that she merely shared a dinner date with Tony Blackburn and neither slept with him nor had a relationship with him.  We are happy to make this clear and apologise to Ms Paul for any upset caused.
