British newspaper The Daily Mail has issued an official apology to John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono after alleging she photographed the singer's bloodstained glasses on the pavement outside their Dakota apartment on the night of his death.

The IMAGINE hitmaker was shot dead by crazed fan Mark Chapman in December 1980, and the article, published last month (05), stated the former beatle's second wife deliberately took the picture the night he was murdered.

The newspaper has now apologised, clarifying the picture was actually taken four months after his death.
