Tow, who was unavailable for comment, is believed tohave left Unique after its VAT and legal problems came to light.
Unique’s parent company IGB Group has been the subject of a restraint order and HM Revenue & Customs expects to soon charge individuals associated with the organisation in April.
Those people affected are also thought to be individuals who used to work for Unique Distribution before it was taken over by IGB.
