Issuing a statement on behalf of Guild Group Ltd, Mr Rigby said: "The Administrator MAY have been informed but I was not.

"I have not had a single alleged breach brought to my attention by anyone.

"In the short term I hope PCC do nothing to unravel the work we have done on much improving PGH. I assume PCC will be appointing one of the half dozen operators we have been working with over the last eight months.

"When I get something official from the Council I will be taking Legal Advice and will respond."
