More heads could be ready to roll at Bulmer, the Woodpecker cider company.

Alan Flockhart, finance director, was the latest to walk the plank last week.

The company has launched an internal investigation to fund out what lies behind an accounting glitch that the company says is linked to previously identified promotional costs.

Business Comment in The Observer says Bulmer could be great again but it needs to find another John Rudgard who left in 1998. “Otherwise, who can blame them if they press for the whole shebang to b e put up for auction?”
