Solar probe continues

Have your say

ANOTHER Sheffield couple have lost £500 in a suspected solar panel firm scam – and the boss is still missing, believed to be abroad.

Pensioners Patricia Hartley and Anthony Fairest of Richmond, Sheffield, paid Fair Deal Energy for a ‘rent-a-roof’ scheme which would have seen them receive free electricity – just like Jacqueline and Melvyn Beeley of Halfway.

But last month Derby City Council announced that boss Peter Brookman had gone missing, leaving a trail of more than 150 complaints.

Ms Hartley said: “We have been to the police and they say that they can’t do anything about it. We have gone without a holiday for this!”
