Steven Lee Sr, 56, of Rosemary Lane, Bartle, Preston, was due to be sentenced this week for trading offences involving a property in Chorley adjoining Harry’s Fish Bar.

He admits engaging as a trader in a commercial practice which contravenes the requirements of professional diligence.

Lancashire Trading Standards launched an investigation relaying to his failure between June and July 2018 to provide consumers with notices setting out their rights to cancel contracts for roofing and building work, and failing to complete work for which he had been paid.
