Diary: Create and Ambari lock horns over fee

Client-agency relationships can often end on a sour note but few end so sourly as that between Create PR and Ambari Beer.

Ambari director Ravin Gill and Create founder Dylan Watkins are currently locked in a dispute over unpaid monthly fees stretching back to June and adjustments made by Watkins to website ambaribeer.co.uk. With Ambari owing Create around £6,700, according to Watkins, the PR man's frustration boiled over and he adjusted the website to read: 'Ambari Beer is offline due to non-payment of PR services... Any enquiries for Ambari Beer via email will be forwarded to (Create's email address).' Gill slams Watkins's antics as 'unprofessional' and says he has even looked into taking 'appropriate legal action' against the PR man. Gill insists he is 'happy' to pay up - and will do, in weekly installments.

Create, meanwhile, was wound up last month and Watkins has set himself up as Future PR. At least he's looking ahead.
