Some 16 such payments will fall due at the end of each month followed by a final £10,000 payment on June 30 2010.

All payments are subject to a 15% redemption premium and interest remains payable at a monthly rate of 10% per annum.

Trafalgar has been granted the option to reinstate the original terms of the deal at any point between August 1 and December 31 2008.
