Paper apologises for mocking Bristol Rovers bus tour

Bristol Rovers FC have done more than prove their critics wrong on the field. The club's open top bus tour celebrating their recent promotion victory was mocked in the media for a lack of fan interest - but left a newspaper red-faced after thousands turned up to celebrate.

The Mirror and a few Twitter users couldn't resist giving the club a hard time for a picture that appeared to show the players looking sheepish as its celebration bus rolled through a deserted Bristol.

The Mirror asked in its headline "Is this the worst ever start to an open top bus parade?" - but had to eat its words after fans pointed out that the bus was only on its way to its first destination, and that thousands of fans did come out to celebrate the team's promotion back to the Football League.

OK, hands up. We'll admit it. We MIGHT have jumped the gun. As many proud Rovers fans have pointed out, that is pretty much what ANY open top bus looks likeā€¦ on the way to the start of a parade. A fair point, well made.

As many of you have pointed out, loads of supporters lined the streets a bit later on and to their credit, they look very happy. And why not? Rovers have returned to the Football League at the first time of asking.

They found that 78% of babies aged six to 12 months usually wake at least once. Some 61% still have at least one milk feed in the night.

And, shattering another myth, the research found no difference in the number of times babies woke up whether they were breast-fed or given formula milk.
