Subbies chase Birse cash

TWO SUBBIES are chasing cash from Birse on a £10 million retail deal in Middlesbrough.

Local firm PJS Brickwork finished work on the contractor's Skippers Lane scheme to build stores for B&Q in April but is still claiming £10,000 on the deal.

PJS boss Paul Stephenson said: 'We were due to be on site for 13 weeks but ended up being there for 45 as various bits of the job were not finished.

'We've had three meetings with directors since then, but no settlement has been made as yet.'

A source at Lancashire firm Carnaby Structures - also chasing outstanding cash - said: 'We are still in discussions with Birse over getting the money.'

A Birse spokesman said: 'We are wrapping the contract up at the moment and there are some outstanding issues, which we hope will be resolved shortly.'
