Blight and Scoble ceases trading

South-west construction company Blight and Scoble has creased trading, it has been announced.

The Devon builder has been put into the process of liquidation by its administrators, Bishop Fleming, while all 50 staff have been made redundant.

Blight and Scoble was working on a new £1.2 million major crime investigation unit in Ashburton’s Linhay Business Park for Devon & Cornwall Police.

A Bishop Fleming spokesman said: “Due to difficult trading conditions the company ceased to trade on August 26 and all employees were made redundant at that time.

“Meetings of the company’s members and creditors are to be held on Wednesday, September 8, at the Devon Hotel, Exeter, when the company will be placed into liquidation and a liquidator appointed.”
