'No evidence of criminal offences' in councils' handling of tax payers money

A police investigation into the handling of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire county councils' handling of tax payers money has found "no evidence of criminal offences."

Gloucestershire Constabulary have now completed their enquiries and have confirmed that following an objective and independent analysis of the evidence, they did not find any evidence to suggest that any criminal offences had taken place. On the basis of this, the police will be taking no further action in relation to these mattes. Both local authorities have been advised of this decision.

The matter was referred to Gloucestershire Constabulary due to the close working relationship between Dyfed-Powys Police and both local authorities involved.

"I came home from work at about half past four and I could see that there were loads of armed policemen outside my front door."

It's been absolutely terrifying. This has been completely out of the blue. It's always been just families living in this area. So to come home and see a lot of armed policemen is absolutely out of character for the area."
