Rogue found guilty

A rogue heating engineer has been busted by trading standards in Enfield.  He was prosecuted for fraudulently using the NIC EIC industry-approved logo.

Steven English, from Essex, was ordered to pay £18,000 in damages to the complainant who had had to move out of his house for the rogue’s work to be put right by a qualified electrician.

English was also given a 2 month suspended prison sentence, 80 hours of community work and was ordered to pay the Council's costs of £5796, 26.

The successful prosecution was hailed another coup for Enfield trading standards by councilor Terry Neville who said: ‘This sends a clear message that Enfield Council will take vigorous action in defence of honest traders and our residents' rights.'
