A ROOFING contractor is being forced to change his firm’s logo in the wake of the allegations against Jimmy Savile.
Jimmy Aspinall, 59, has used Jim’ll Fix It as the catchphrase on his van since 1994 but since allegations about the conduct of the former BBC presenter have become public, he said he has suffered a loss of trade.
“A lot of people used to call me Jim’ll Fix It,” said Mr Aspinall.
“It has all changed now. I have had it 20 years and now I have to change it.
“There is a lot of anger and we have lost trade because of it. People are saying I should not have it on my van.”
Mr Aspinall, of Weaver Avenue, Rhyl, runs Jimmy Aspinall Roofing along with his son Niki, 32.
“I saw him as a hero,” he said.
“I thought he was a good man helping charities. It has been a big shock, everyone thought he was a hero.
“It is very sad.”
Mr Aspinall, who has run the firm for more than 30 years, said it will cost him more than £200 to remove the slogan from his van and replace it.
He is now appealing for anyone with an idea to replace the logo to contact him on 07831377554.
