Apology

In our article on 6 November 2006 “Tragedy of girls killed in a car crash” we stated that Louise Jones, Kayleigh Parry, Katie Roberts and Danielle Caswell had been in the back of a Vauxhall Corsa when it lost control after a pub night out. In fact, none of the occupants of the car had been in a pub that evening and we sincerely apologise to all the families concerned for the distress this report may have caused.

Report: 74
