Mobile home couple's warning
A RETIRED couple who misled into buying a mobile home say they hope their experience will serve as a warning to others.
Keith and Noreen Carley lost more than £50,000 when they were sold a home at Cotswold Grange Country Park, in Twyning, as a permanent retirement base.
They didn't realise it only had planning permission as a temporary home and was worth around half the £109,000 they paid for it.
Park owner Robert Bull, 37, from Thetford in Norfolk, was fined £8,000 at Gloucester Crown Court last week.

Robert Bull trading as Cotswold Grange Country Park pleaded to two charges of engaging in an unfair commercial practice under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.
Mr Bull misled consumers, who sold their homes to buy static caravans at Cotswold Grange Country Park, by failing to tell them that the static caravans only had planning permission as holiday homes and could not be lived in 12 months of the year.
Mrs Carley said: "We will learn from it. Hopefully our experience will act as a warning to others."
