Whitney Houston: Sony 'sorry' for album price hike

Record label Sony has apologised for increasing the price of two Whitney Houston albums in the UK, hours after her death on Saturday.

The wholesale cost of the two LPs - Houston's Ultimate Collection and Greatest Hits - went up by about £3 each, causing an automatic price increase on iTunes.

Is there anyone who is even remotely surprised that the record labels tried doing this?
