The People last week took a lot of criticism after it emerged it had apparently made up an "exclusive" interview with James Bond actor Roger Moore.
So this weekend it seems the paper is sticking to safer territory with its front page "exclusive" - reporting a story instead which was all over television news, local news and other newspapers' websites for much of Saturday:
Some of the quotes The People has used, attributed to an anonymous eyewitness, have not appeared elsewhere. But nor have they moved the story on at all or set The People's version of events apart from anything else out there.
For example, The People reported:
"The eyewitness, who did not want to be named... [said]... "He burst into the bookies with a gun and demanded the cashier hand over money...when he turned round one of the guys in there managed to grab him and get him to the ground."
But This is Plymouth had already reported:
"Another local resident ...who asked to remain anonymous... said the man had burst into the bookmaker's wielding what she described as a "firearm". The woman said she had been told the man had died after bookies staff and punters restrained him."
And the police statement issued on Saturday appears to contain all the facts reported in The People's story:
"...it is understood a man entered the betting shop sometime around 6.45pm wearing a gas mask and holding a pistol-type firearm... People in the shop immediately tackled the man and were able to restrain and disarm him... The man was held down, still wearing his gas mask, while police were called."
