Row over 'prize' Jag.

JAGUAR has launched an investigation into why a black professional footballer named player of the month at his club did not receive his prize of a luxury car.

Brentford's Gavin Mahon went to pick up the Jaguar V6SES - to use until May - last week as part of a deal between the club and a Stratstone's of Mayfair dealership. But he left empty-handed.

The club later received a letter from Stratstone saying the agreement had been ended because it was no longer commercially viable. Mr Mahon claims he was racially discriminated against. Stratstone has denied the allegation but said the incident was "regrettable".
