The Examiner has been given more details about the roadworks on Peel Road after the paper made an access to information (the government’s current non-statutory equivalent of Freedom of Information) request.

This week’s paper reveals more about the problems discovered when the core samples were investigated and found to be inadequate.

The paper also reports on the court case of a man found guilty of assaulting a deemster. The full story is inside.
