It's not fair, ex-BHS owner complains after court hearing

Former BHS owner Dominic Chappell has complained that he "cannot take this pressure anymore" as he appeared in court to face action to ban him as a company director.
The former racing driver, who bought the retailer from Sir Philip Green for €1 in 2015, before it collapsed a year later with the loss of 11,000 jobs, added later: "I don't think I've had a fair deal."Mr Chappell was appearing before a judge at an Insolvency and Companies Court hearing in London where he is facing action under rules governing the disqualification of company directors.He was representing himself at the hearing, telling Judge Daniel Schaffer that he did not have the money to pay for a lawyer.Mr Chappell said he was happy to be banned but disputed some of the evidence presented against him."I just cannot fight any more," he said. "I cannot take this pressure anymore."Judge Schaffer said his view on the accuracy of the evidence could affect the length of a ban, which would be decided on at a further hearing.
