The Sun has apologised to "alien lifeforms" after the newspaper said that it had received a letter from the lawyers for the Church of Scientology.

The apology concerned an article, published on Saturday, with the headline ‘Flying saucers over British Scientology HQ’.

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.
