    PUB TROUBLE

    The Wollongong publican who hit the headlines when he was accused of telling one of his ageing barmaids that he wanted to replace her with "young glamours" has also hit financial trouble, losing his four pubs to a receiver.

    The National Australia Bank has appointed the receiver McGrathNicol to David Wakeford's pub empire after it defaulted on loans worth about $15 million.
