He Doug deep for towns


A MAN left £220,000 in his will to towns across the world that share his surname.

Solicitors acting on behalf of Eric Gordon Douglas, from Edinburgh, sent a cheque for £10,887.73 to Douglas Borough Council on the Isle of Man as part of the bequest.

But the council for the island’s capital appealed for more informatio­n on Mr Douglas in order to recognise him for his “unusual” donation.
