Just hours after a criminal investigation was launched into potential fraudulent activity at Patisserie Valerie, its executive chairman has come up with a rescue plan.

Patisserie Holdings has a net debt of about £9.8m. Luke Johnson has reportedly agreed to a £10m interest-free three-year loan, while the group also proposes to raise another £15m by selling new shares.

All this will help the group to “continue trading in its current form for the foreseeable future”. Read the full statement here:

This development comes as a major relief to its 2500 workers.
