LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) — The London Bridge is not falling down, despite a British tabloid saying that the Lake Havasu City tourist attraction could be bulldozed to make way for drug tourism.

Lake Havasu City officials heard about the story in The Sun after a local resident who is from a town near London showed them a copy of it. They say it was a slap in the face and demanded a retraction and an apology.

Doug Traub with the Lake Havasu City Convention and Visitors Bureau said Tuesday that the city got a partial victory with the article no longer appearing on The Sun's website.

Lake Havasu City is known for its link to London. The city's founder purchased a version of the bridge in 1968 and had it reconstructed in western Arizona.
