Local News Story Of The Day: Sadd News From Purley
LOCAL News Story of The Day: The Coulsdon and Purley Advertiser reports on the closure of Jeff Dee Bookmakers, in Purley, which shut its doors owing money to punters.
Steve Walters, 54, from Kenley, asks:
Why was he taking people’s money two days before he shut shop, when he knew he was going under? I’ve just been to see about getting my money back and they’re saying no.”
He has now paid back all money owed.
But the story worthy of note for the inclusion of a “William and David Sadd – owed £54 between them”, spotted waiting outside the shop.
Says William Sadd, from Purley:
“We feel misled because he told us we could collect our money and he was also taking bets days before shutting up. He left us with all that worry of not getting our money back.”
Sadd by name…
More nominative determinism when we spot it.
