John Dyer & Son Auctions has written to ask clients still owed money from auctions in November and January to “be patient”.

Last month, H&H reported how customers were owed as much as £10,000 by John Dyer. He promised to pay all customers before his next sale on 20 March (news, 16 February).

But now the sale of Lordsbridge Farm in Barton, Cambridgeshire, has been cancelled and customers have not received payment.

Cambridgeshire Police are investigating.
