Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

Keywords : Leann Rimes, Insolvency

SISSON & French, the Derbyshire haulage business that was battling a winding-up petition from a creditor, as well as having its licence revoked, has gone into administration.

Insolvency practitioners Nick Rimes and Adam Jordan at Rimes & Co were appointed to the irm at the beginning of October, following months of speculation about its ability to trade.

Fuel company and creditor Bates & Hunt presented a petition in court to wind up the irm in May. Two months later North Western Trafic Commissioner Beverley Bell revoked its licence.

The appointment of administrators is described as “disappointing” by one of the original owners of the company, Robert Sisson, who sold it along with Martin French in 2010 due to health problems. Sisson says it had a good relationship with Bates & Hunt and regularly ordered 20,000 litres of fuel a month under a credit facility.

Sisson & French MD Thomas Armstrong is also listed as sole director of SF Haulage, which was incorporated in March and is registered at Companies House with the same address as Sisson & French. Armstrong, Rimes and Jordan did not respond as CM went to press.
