Man denies 'giving misleading price indication'

A MAN with an Antrim address denies charges including allegedly 'giving a misleading price indication'.

He is accused of saying work in the town in June this year would cost £700 but it was then, it is claimed, changed to £2,800 upon completion.

Patrick Doherty (67), of Dublin Road, is also alleged to have engaged in an 'unfair' commercial practice whilst trading as an 'outdoor cleaner'.

He faces other charges including failing to give notice of a right to cancel a contract.

The charges relate to Birch Hill Road South, Antrim, on June 2 this year.

At  Antrim Magistrates Court, sitting in Ballymena, a defence lawyer said the charges involved "power hosing".

The defence barrister said the defendant denies being the person allegedly involved.

The case has been adjourned to December 14 to fix a date for a contest.
