Apologies for the unpleasant comments which appeared below on the article 'Catholic Care forced to close'. They should have been removed automatically yesterday when the commenter – Doris – was blacklisted. For some reason this didn't happen and, as a result, the comments stayed up long than they should have. They have now been removed manually. I suspect that our readers are, in general, not easily offended, so I doubt anyone was unduly peturbed by Doris's bigotry. Nevertheless, if you do spot these sorts of comments in future, please use the 'Flag' function in the comment section to draw them to our attention.
