An earlier version of an article about The Schooner public house claimed:

"St. Peter's Neighbourhood Association took their gripe to Gateshead Council."

This is untrue.  St. Peter's Neighbourhood Association has taken no view on the ongoing matters which is reflected in the no comment statement.

Residents have a right to take up issues with organisations if they choose to do so, or to show their support for them.

The publisher has been asked to amend the story to reflect the Association had taken no action, and to apologise. They have done the former.
