'Out of control': Rumours of The Black Duck closing

RUMOURS swirling around the city that Gladstone's The Black Duck closing have been put to rest.

The Black Duck is open as per usual, but owner Natalie Lane acknowledged the rumour had spread quickly.

"Sometimes rumours can be blown a little bit out of proportion," Ms Lane said.

"It's got a little bit out of control and it's got a lot to do with Facebook. The rumours have spread pretty quickly."
