25% think moon landings hoax

A QUARTER of Britons believe the Apollo moon landings were a hoax, according to a poll conducted this month.

The Toy Story film character was named alongside Louis Armstrong. Eight of those taking part thought the late jazz musician made the first moon walk.

Not quite three-quarters correctly answered that Neil Armstrong took the first step onto the moon.
