Letter: After Fayed

Letter: After Fayed

I AM NOT "bouffant-haired". My hair grows like this without aid or encouragement. I have never used a hair-dryer in my life and unlike some politicians and TV presenters, I have never dyed my hair.

"Was he pushed or did he fall?", you ask ("Cole quits toughest job in PR", 21 February). Neither. I retired after 10 fascinating and fulfilling years as a member of the main board of Harrods and of its holding company, working for and with Mr Mohamed Al Fayed, an outstanding businessman and a very human, human being whom I shall always regard as a friend. It was a privilege to know him and his remarkable family.
