A maths teacher in Spalding who paid out more than £50,000 to a builder for home improvements has ended up doing the job himself.Mark Murfit, of Fleet Hargate, was so fed up with the lack of progress made on his 71-year-dad Dave’s barn conversion in the village that he finally took matters into his own hands and carried out the work, largely on his own.Mr Murfit, a staff member at Spalding Academy, had originally hired Lutton builder Jacob Weir (38) to do the work over four months between September and December 2016.
