A PUB landlord was left red faced after a council mistake led to his application for a temporary event notice being advertised as an application for a sex establishment. Dave Edwards, owner of the Propeller Inn, Bembridge, has complained to the IW Council after he discovered its website was stating he had applied for a licence for a sex venue. A council spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, an administrative error led to the licence being listed under the wrong section of our website for a short period of time. “We apologised to the applicant for our mistake and quickly rectified the error as soon as we became aware of it.”Mr Edwards only discovered what had happened after customers started to ask him about it and a member of staff found the web page showing the details.The council deleted the item after he contacted them but Mr Edwards plans to take the issue further to ensure it does not happen to anyone else.He said: “Anyone in the world could have seen this. It had my full name and address and it was not the sort of thing I would want to be associated with. I can see the joke in most things but to have this bandied across the web for all and sundry to see was not good.”Reporter: email@example.com
