AN EXPAT couple have praised the Olive Press after we helped save their home from demolition.
Disabled expat John Gray and wife Deborah were amazed that within a week of our front page story last issue, their home in Alhaurin el Grande was given a full stay of execution.
However, the day after we went to print the town hall offered double the amount and a week later the entire project was scrapped.
“Thank you so much for all your hard work. As soon as the Olive Press began asking questions the town hall offered us new deals,” said Gray.
“Indeed, the very day the paper came out we were offered €20,000 more and a week later we were told plans had been changed and the one-way system will no longer go through our house, hurrah!”
