On December 22 we ran a story about a court case involving police constable Robert Butterfield. Subsequently, a comment was posted on our website that implied a connection between Mr. Butterfield and an incident in which female tourists were attacked. The comment should never have been posted on our website.

The Bermuda Sun does not associate itself with the comment and believes that there is no connection between Mr Butterfield and the incident. The Bermuda Sun apologises unreservedly to Mr. Butterfield and anyone close to him who might have been offended by what was written. The comment was removed from the website immediately after Mr. Butterfield's concern was brought to our attention.
