 EVENING CHRONICLE (Newcastle, UK)

Fresh fears that a Northumberland hotel is earmarked as a refuge for asylum seekers have been dismissed by the new owners. Jim Vaughan, group facilities director of The Angel Group, said Otterburn Hall will not be redeveloped as a hostel for up to 200 refugees as rumoured. Fears surfaced in January and local people are concerned that Otterburn’s infrastructure could not cope. Bryce Watson, of Otterburn and District Action Group, said local people had been kept completely in the dark and are not assured that the hall will not end up a refuge. A meeting with the Julia Davey, Angel Group’s chief executive, had been cancelled at the last minute, fuelling speculation. However, Mr Vaughan said: “I can categorically state that the hall will remain a hotel and country club.”
