Captain Sir Tom Moore’s daughter shares cryptic post during spa planning row

Captain Sir Tom Moore’s daughter has shared a cryptic Instagram post while fighting a planning permission battle.

Hannah Ingram-Moore, the woman who helped popularise Captain Sir Tom’s mid-pandemic efforts to raise money for the NHS, posted a photo of two dogs over the weekend with the accompanying caption: “Dogs don’t judge x”.

The picture, which was set to the tune of Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”, attracted immediate support as she appeared to hit back at critics after she was slammed over her family’s planning row with local officials.

She and her husband are waiting to find out whether they must bulldoze a pool and spa complex they built on their Bedfordshire property.

The mum-of-two has been accused of “using the name” of the World War Two veteran turned lockdown hero to build the complex, but her post showed she still counts on several supporters.

She received just over a dozen comments, with one commenter praising her “beautiful fur babies”, and another adding: “Beautiful dogs. Hope you are all well. Ignore the trolls x”

Another supportive profile said: “I do prefer them to most people. You’re doing a brilliant job your father would be proud.”

The supporters also drew out several people critical of the PR guru, with one replying to the second comment questioning: “Is this sarcasm because if it isn’t, it should be.”

Mrs Ingram-Moore has attracted criticism after being accused of using her father’s charity name for the controversial complex after she and her husband, Colin Ingram-Moore, initially informed Bedfordshire planners that they wanted permission to build an office for the Captain Tom Foundation.

The couple completed the application using their names but allegedly name-checked the charitable foundation in a section of the design and access and heritage statement.

But The Sun reported that the family’s finished project – which is attached to their seven-bed, £1.2million home – was a 50ft by 20ft pool house complete with changing rooms, toilets and showers, The Sun reported.

The family had noted the space was “urgently required” following Captain Sir Tom Moore’s death in August 2021.

While the annex was initially approved, permission for the spa complex was refused in 2022, and Central Bedfordshire Council issued an enforcement notice for demolition after refusing a retrospective application.

Charity trustees told The Sun that they were not aware of planning permissions made by the couple “purporting to be in the foundation’s name”, adding they would not have authorised any applications.

The council ordered the couple to demolish the extension in March, but Mr Ingram-Moore appealed the notice to the Planning Inspectorate in May, and a hearing date has been set for October 17.
