ON Thursday, we reported the Thurrock Council leader defending the council’s job cut plans.
It included the following from councillor Rob Geldhill in a quote.
“I am sure that no one, other than the Labour leader, forgets we inherited a deficit of £40m from Labour when we took control of the Council in 2016.”
On Friday, we have been asked to correct this article.
Councillor Gledhill has since advised he made a typographical error and the true figure is £30million.
Over the weekend, YT will have a trawl through our archive (38,000 stories) but a figure nearer £18 million comes to mind.
We will let you know in due course.
