    Burberry try to bury bad news

    Yesterday I got a call from Red Dragon FM at about 4.00. They had received a press release from Burberry's PR advisers Brunswick, which said that Burberry was confirming it expected to close Treorchy on March 30th. Now, we've always known they were talking about the end of March, so that wasn't much of a surprise.

    However, when I checked, they didn't seem to have sent their release to PA, the South Wales Echo, BBC Wales or ITV Wales. As one of the journalists concerned said to me, 'looks like they are trying to bury it.'

    Well, they haven't. But how crass can they get?
