Local rogue builder to appear on BBC How Safe is Your House?

A local Highland builder is to appear in a new BBC rogue trader consumer programme entitled “How Safe is Your House?” 

Norman Hughes (recently trading as: Caledonian Roofing and Building and Driveline Paving) has been carrying out shoddy paving work at extortionate prices and ignoring warnings from trading standards officers. To alert consumers, Highland Council trading standards officers seized the opportunity to be featured in a primetime slot for BBC One’s How safe is your house? programme.

Highland Council Trading Standards hopes that the show will allow trading standards an opportunity to warn anyone who may consider doing business with Norman Hughes, and help officers to connect with those who have already fallen victim.

This new consumer issues programme was shown at 7.30pm on BBC1 in England and Wales last night and Scottish viewers will see it on BBC One Scotland on 7.30pm on Friday, 11th July 2014.

Consumers can contact Highland Trading Standards through their partners, Citizens Advice Consumer Service Helpline on 0345 04 05 06.  Highland Trading Standards can also be contacted directly at 38 Harbour Road, Inverness IV1 1UF or by e-mail to trading.standards@highland.gov.uk
