A front page article in the Wrexham Leader on January 17, which was also featured on www.leaderlive.co.uk, reported on a Freedom of Information (FOI) request by Len Griffiths, of Southsea, Wrexham.

Mr Griffiths had asked: “Can you please let me know how much the Groves School site has cost the council since it was closed as a school."

The response from Wrexham Council prompted an article which wrongly suggested the cost to the local authority since 2015-16 was more than £1.1m.

Following a complaint to the Leader by the Save Our Heritage community interest company, Cllr Phil Wynn, lead member for education, has said: “It’s clear  the years referred to in the FOI response are wrong and I apologise if anyone feels they have been misled. 

“The figure of £1.1m is for the period 2005-2017. I hope this clarifies the position.”
