So how much was the debt the Thurrock Tories inherited from Labour?

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.
