Geoff Hurst fights Spanish property developers
08 June 2009 @ 15:07

England World Cup star Sir Geoff Hurst is leading a £2million High Court claim against Spanish property developers.

Hurst has joined forces with five others, each of whom claims they have lost hundreds of thousands of pounds investing in luxury apartments near Marbella that will never be built.

Olympic rower Sir Steve Redgrave and former England rugby star Tony Underwood endorsed the projects along with Hurst before finding some investors had lost their deposits when schemes were scrapped.

The three had invested in the Royal Marbella Group.

The sportsmen say that while some of its schemes were completed, others - including Lince Sanctuario near Seville, where Redgrave invested £2million in an off-plan villa - will never see the light of day.

Redgrave and Underwood are not among the claimants in the High Court action.

Five years since investing in the projects, the land has changed hands and the current owners will not recognise the contracts of Hurst and the other investors, the legal action claims.

Hurst invested in an off-plan apartment at the former Royal Marbella development in Manilva on the Costa del Sol.

However, construction work will not go ahead as building licences were illegally issued by mayor Pedro Tirado, who was later jailed for accepting bribes.

'I am angry at the lies I was told,' said Hurst. 'I am determined to take action to recover the money we lost.'
