Following my complaint to the Independent (on Sunday) about the daft article on Sunday ferries out of Stornoway, I have received the following response:
Many thanks for your email regarding the Associated Press story carried by the website about the ferry service between Ullapool and Stornaway.
Firstly, apologies for the tardy response, I’ve been away this week and the emails were just passed to me.
The piece came from an AP journalist, not from the Independent or Independent on Sunday and there do seem to be some stereotypes rather enthusiastically embraced by the journalist in question. I will raise the issue with AP and take the story off the site immediately.
