'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.

– A Dyfed-Powys Police spokesperson

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