London and Edingburgh Swallow Group closes six properties

Six former properties belonging to London and Edinburgh Swallow Group have been closed by administrators after attempts to find a buyer failed.

Ernst & Young announced yesterday that three hotels and three managed pubs were now set for closure as no potential purchasers had been forthcoming.

Angela Swarbrick, joint administrator, said: "It is unfortunate that despite negotiation with interested parties, it has not been possible to conclude a sale of these hotels and pubs to secure their long-term future. Regretfully, we are no longer able to continue trading the sites affected."

The sites closed were Dreadnought in Bathgate, Scotland; the George in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire; Tudor Gate Hotel, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire; the Bull Inn, Newington, Kent; the Kemsley Arms, Sittingbourne, Kent and the Riverside Inn, Newton Abbott, Devon
