Met Police to investigate London Labour candidate selections

Conservatives have asked the Metropolitan Police to investigate Labour's candidate selection process in two further constituencies, it was revealed today.

Tory vice-chairman Bob Neill wrote to Met Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe asking him to look into allegations of possible fraud relating to Ilford North and Lewisham Deptford, both in Greater London.

The call comes after Labour handed over evidence to police in Scotland about claims that the Unite union tried to fix the result of a candidate selection in Falkirk by packing the constituency with members, whose subscriptions it paid.
