A relative of a woman who was conned by a rogue trader has thanked the people of Corby after they pulled together and did the work for free.

Lynn Copeland’s husband’s aunt paid a Corby builder £360 to lay paving slabs at her house in June.

He then allegedly gave her a hand-written receipt claiming he had to buy materials, before disappearing and failing to respond to numerous attempts to contact him.

But Lynn says she was delighted when locals offered to help out by doing the work for them.

She said: “It was really frustrating to see what happened and it’s annoying that he is probably still doing the same to others.

“We all felt really hard done by, especially after being promised the work and not being able to contact him.

“Lots of people have come forward and offered their support which is fantastic to see and we’re all really thankful for it.

“There is big community in Corby and everbody helps each other out.

“The work has now been done and everyone is really pleased.”
