The agency, Dukes Letting Department, is also being investigated by police after closing its doors on February 17.

A county council spokesman said, “We are aware that this limited company has recently ceased trading and are currently trying to establish which liquidator has been appointed.

“Anyone who has lost money as a result of a company going out of business should in the first instance contact the Citizens’ Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06 so that we can distribute further information to those affected when it becomes available.”
