Putting your faith in solicitors could leave you out of pocket, according to a survey by consumer magazine Which?.

Researchers working for the magazine took four separate problems to 79 different solicitors' firms across the UK.

They found that in one scenario concerning a double-glazing dispute, only one solicitor out of 21 was able to give correct advice. Three more gave advice that could have cost thousands of pounds in unwanted double glazing.
