The liquidator for Seafield Logistics received unsecured claims of more than £7m.

A liquidator’s progress report from Grant Thornton, published as the failed business enters the final stages of the insolvency process, revealed claims for £7.1m were made following the operator’s collapse in June 2014.

Grant Thornton said in the report that the final payout to those affected creditors will be 18p in the pound, or £1.3m, with the liquidator having now finished the process of pursuing outstanding debts.

The amount is broadly in line with an initial estimate.

Following the operator’s collapse, Abbey Logistics (bulk powder operation), Lomas Distribution (Winsford site) and the Green Group (warehouse) acquired a number of the business’s assets.
