PAPERWORK is still being stored inside an Ilkeston solicitors which was forced to close three years ago, a lawyer claimed in court last week.

The claim was made at Derby Magistrates Court last Thursday during the sentencing of Ilkeston man Anthony Shaw who stole law books from the derelict offices of Walter, Scott and Ross in St Mary’s Street.

His solicitor John Last said the premises of the former firm – which was closed by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) in March 2009 because of financial irregularities on the part of two solicitors – had not been adequately secured.
