Saving a family wedding business with too many dresses

Businesswoman Alex Polizzi is trying to help a struggling family wedding business in Kettering and is shocked by the manager's lack of business shrewdness and excessive stock.

Anne Preece has already re-mortgaged her house to save Courtyard Bridalwear, but profits are falling and her daughters cannot stop arguing.

Alex Polizzi visits family-run firms, struggling to survive in the current economic climate in BBC Two's The Fixer on Tuesdays at 20:00GMT from 31 January.
