Lincolnshire garage prosecuted for failing to replace cambelt

The Lincolnshire Echo reports a female motorist used the services of H&H Motors in Lincolnshire to change the cambelt on her vehicle.

Unfortunately the person that was given the job was working to repay a debt to the business and decided not to carry out the job.  The garage owner, unaware of the omission, billed the motorist for the work and advised that the turbo was due for replacement.
The motorist decided to get a second opinion, only to find the cambelt had not been changed.  The garage owner was given a conditional discharge and ordered to pay costs of £964.80. 
The employee who failed to carry out the work received a 12 week suspended sentence for 12 months. He was also ordered to pay £600 prosecution costs and a Good Causes charge of £80.
