US makes formal apology to Britain over wiretapping

The US has made a formal apology to Britain after the White House accused GCHQ of helping Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump.

The White House said Friday that spokesman Sean Spicer had not accused Britain of spying on President Donald Trump when he repeated a Fox News report claiming that London's GCHQ intelligence agency had done so.

After GCHQ bluntly rejected the allegation as "utterly ridiculous," the White House said they had reassured the British that "Mr. Spicer was simply pointing to public reports, not endorsing any specific story."
