The London Evening Standard quickly issues a reprint, removes references to videogame influence.
Yesterday, IncGamers reported on an anonymous source that suggested the London Evening Standard was planning to use quotes that blamed the Grand Theft Auto series for “inspiring” the riots that have hit London and other parts of the country.
It seems that the source was right, the Evening Standard writing on their front page that “Children as young as ten, inspired by video game, among the loots.” However, the paper quickly changed their tone and issued a reprint, changing the line to “Children as young as ten hunted by police after riots across city.”
