Another Liverpool couple have been caught out trying to defraud a travel company with false claims of holiday food poisoning, and this time the doctor and solicitor who supported and brought the claim are also being investigated.

Chelsea Devine, 21, and Jamie Melling, 22, were ordered by Liverpool County Court to pay operator Tui £15,000 after finding them “fundamentally dishonest” for trying to claim £2,500 each for their fictional sickness. In this case Tui also discovered that the pair’s doctor who gave evidence supporting their claim, Zuber Bux is married to Sebana Bux, who is a partner in AMS Solicitors of Preston, who brought the case to court.

Accordingly Tui have reported the doctor to the General Medical Council and the solicitor to the Solicitors Regulation Authority and await their responses.
