Equipment taken from Brassington’s

Following the closure of Brassingtons Bakery Ltd a quantity of bakery equipment and a delivery vehicle were illegally removed from the premises at 58 Brown Street, Macclesfield.

These items should have been disposed of by a liquidator, to help fund unpaid staff wages, staff redundancies and significant debts from a number of creditors.

Cheshire Police were informed but have declined to take action.

Can we still rely on the police to protect us?
