HARLOW Council has complained that the social media pages of the now-defunct Harlow Star often share negative stories about incidents in other areas reports the Press Gazette.
A number of organisations including Harlow Council, Discover Harlow and Principal of Passmores Academy, Vic Goddard as well as members of the public expressed their exasperation at the weekend after another batch of tweets and facebook entries.
