Police are investigating Gloucestershire horsebox builder Nick Hobson following a string of complaints from customers.
Mr Hobson of Cotswold Horseboxes was the subject of a major H&H news story (1 February 2007) after he took tens of thousands of pounds from clients to build lorries he has now left neglected and partly built.
The article spurred a number of his former clients to approach H&H, and Gloucestershire Police are now asking for more information.
“We’ve had a number of calls from people who have paid money and work hasn’t been done,” said a police spokesman. “It is now beingn treated as a criminal matter and being followed up as such.”
If you have any information or a complaint, contact Gloucestershire Police (tel: 0845 0901234).
