British paper to correct story on Arizona’s London Bridge

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. — Lake Havasu City officials say a British tabloid
plans to issue a correction for a story stating Arizona’s own London Bridge
could be bulldozed to make way for drug tourism.

The Today’s News-Herald reports the correction will be
published Monday, according to a letter sent to the city from The Sun’s

Lake Havasu City Convention and Visitors Bureau CEO Doug Traub said The Sun
also plans to send a reporter to the city for a follow-up piece.

The Sun had reported the bridge was cracking and the city planned to demolish
it and turn the area into a haven for marijuana users called Hemped in Havasu.

City officials said the story was a slap in the face, particularly when more
than $600,000 in bridge improvements are planned.
