Angry brides wage war on bridal shop owner
Every bride wants to look good on her wedding day so when that dreamt of dress becomes a nightmare you'd better watch out. All too often rogue traders get away with it - even closing one business to open another under a different name within a week or so.
Perhaps as the credit crunch hits we will see customers taking control and demanding quality and when they don't get it or are ripped off will hit back.
The owner of a failed bridal business has been forced to employ a bodyguard to protect her from scores of brides angry that they have left without their wedding dresses.
Lisa Clarkson received threats last month and went into hiding after the sudden closure of her shop left about 170 brides out of pocket and without a dress for their big day.
She reappeared on Monday at a creditors meeting where she was branded a "cheat" and a "fraudster" by some of the angry brides-to-be.
