A workman has admitted engaging in unfair commercial practice.

Steven Lee, of The Stables, Rosemary Lane, Bartle, Preston, was investigated by Lancashire Trading Standards over a failure to give cancellation rights for roofing and building work to a couple, and misdescribing and failing to complete work he had been paid for.

The offence dates back to June and July 2018.

The 67-year-old, who has a chequered history of similar crimes, admitted the consumer offence in a hearing before Preston Crown Court.
