Brian Reade column: No refund on Dunc.

Byline: Brian Reade

AS PART of the Mirror's new corrections policy I am pleased to devote part of this column to quashing inaccurate rumours.

First, the two men found rummaging around Duncan Ferguson's barnhouse were trying to steal HIS money, not, as rumoured, hard-up businessmen Sir Philip Carter and Bill Kenwright trying to reclaim THEIR money.

Secondly, there is no truth in the rumour that Maradona is to line-up with Dundee's three most famous sons when his circus arrives at Dens Park. Publishers DC Thompson said they had approached Dennis The Menace, Gnasher and Desperate Dan, but "the trio wouldn't lower themselves to mix with such a sad cartoon character".
