In the article published on page four of today’s Forfar Dispatch regarding the Kirriemuir Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme, we carried extracts from a letter which we reported had been sent by local councillors Iain Gaul, Jeanette Gaul and Ronnie Proctor.

It has been brought to our attention that we reported this inaccurately and the letter and the comments attributed had absolutely nothing to do with Mr Gaul, Mrs Gaul or Mr Proctor.

We accept that this was wholly inaccurate and apologise for any upset caused to the local councillors.
