Haulier hits cash barrier

Insolvency experts from Sheffield have been called in to wind up a haulage company from Driffield.

Gareth Rusling and Andy Wood from The P&A Partnership have been appointed joint liquidators of AR Fry.

Mr Rusling said: "Unfortunately, the haulier had been hit by the recession, with business dropping off and lack of finance.

"By the time we were called in there were no other options. All six employees were made redundant and the wagons have been sold or returned to the finance company."

Mr Rusling urged other businesses that had faced difficult trading conditions over Christmas to seek help from their accountants or other professionals.
