Burslem North councillor Jean Edwards is also expecting to be questioned. She said this morning: "All I can say is that I am going to be interviewed by the police, but I can not talk about the case.
"It is in the police's hands and they are calling a lot of councillors in."
A Labour Party source, who did not wish to be named, said: "The police questioned four of our members.
"They weren't arrested, but they were warned it would not be advisable to refuse to be interviewed. We've been told not to be interviewed unless there is a Labour Party lawyer present.
