Pub not sold

Have your say

In a letter to the Echo (Saturday, August 8) a correspondent said that the Hylton Castle Arms, in Sunderland, had been sold amid fears it was going to be knocked down.

The owners have contacted the Echo to confirm that the Hylton Castle Arms is up for sale, but has not been sold, and that there are no plans to knock the building down.

We are happy to set the record straight and apologise for any embarrassment the letter may have caused.
