Peters' debt to fall on the taxpayers.
HUGE debts left behind by the collapse of a Huddersfield store will fall on Kirklees Council taxpayers.
The authority has revealed it is unlikely to recover more than PS160,000 owed in business rates by Peters, which re-opened in the Packhorse Centre days ago. The council has tried legal moves to claw back the cash but admitted the move is likely to fail.
The store went into administration last month with debts of more than PS900,000.
Bosses David and Caroline Whittle then bought back the name and started up in business again.
