Captain Tom's daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore shares smiling holiday snap with family after being slammed over spa complex | The Sun

CAPTAIN Tom's daughter has shared a smiling holiday snap with her family after being slammed over a spa complex at her £1.2million home.

Hannah Ingram-Moore, 52, posed on a balcony with husband Colin and their two kids as they holidayed abroad amid the pool house scandal.

The couple came under fire this week after being accused of using the name of Capt Tom's lockdown fundraiser to build the 50ft by 20ft outhouse with changing rooms, toilets and showers.

They told planners they wanted an office for The Captain Tom Foundation at their £1.2million home in Bedfordshire.

But The Sun revealed they then built the spa and pool complex in their garden, which the charity trustees claim they were left in the dark about.

And as they suffered backlash, Hannah and Colin were sunning it up in another country.

Hannah posted a screenshot from BeReal to her Instagram story on Tuesday – the same day the scandal broke.

The family are cuddled up for the smiling snap while looking out onto a seemingly small village as the sun sets over the hill.

The mum-of-two also added the song "We Are Family" to the post.

The Capt Tom Foundation trustees insisted this week they were not aware of any planning application submitted in the foundation's name.

A spokesperson said: “At no time were The Captain Tom Foundation’s independent trustees aware of planning permissions made by Mr and Mrs Ingram-Moore purporting to be in the foundation’s name.

"Had they been aware of any applications, the independent trustees would not have authorised them.”

Capt Tom's daughter and son-in-law have since been ordered to tear the spa complex down.

Bedfordshire Council yesterday confirmed the couple are appealing against the order.

In a statement they said: "An enforcement notice requiring the demolition of the now-unauthorised building was issued.

"And this is now subject to an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate."

Plans for the L-shaped building at the seven-bed mansion in Marston Moretaine were given the green light in 2021.

They had applied in their own names for planning — but used the foundation’s name in the design and access and heritage statement.

The statement claimed the building was to be used partly "in connection with The Captain Tom Foundation and its charitable objectives".

A subsequent 2022 retrospective application – which is sought after something has already been built – to extend the originally approved building to form a C-shape, containing a spa pool, was refused by the planning authority.

The structure was referred to as The Captain Tom Building and described as "a new building for use by the occupiers", aka Hannah and Colin.

The Captain Tom Foundation is no longer receiving donations amid an ongoing investigation by the Charity Commission.

Capt Tom lifted spirits during the first Covid lockdown by walking laps of his garden in the run-up to his 100th   birthday.

He raised almost £39million for the NHS.
