Grant Thornton sign

NEW AUDITORS have been appointed at Safeland after Baker Tilly quit the role.

Grant Thornton has stepped in to replace Baker Tilly at the property developer.

Safeland is in currently dealing with recovering misappropriated funds. The missing funds total more than £1.5m, with Safeland looking to recoup £700,000.

Baker Tilly had quit over what it described as "an unmanageable conflict of interest" that arose after the initial discovery of lost funds.
