Angry tenants and suppliers plan to take former Swallow pubs and hotels boss Alan Bowes to court in a bid to force an investigation by the Department of Trade and Industry. One unsecured creditor, who claimed to be owed more than £140,000, said they wanted Bowes's affairs brought into the public domain. The group went into administration last month with debts of almost £60m, leaving 7,000 jobs in the balance. Administrator Ernst & Young closed a further 12 managed pubs last week with loss of 80 jobs. The Mail on Sunday (Financial Mail) 15/10/06 page 5
