(2009) New Labour Cllr. "unknown"

POLICE investigating allegations of corruption at Stoke-on-Trent City Council have questioned several councillors.

Up to four members of the council's 16-strong Labour group are believed to have been interviewed by detectives in the last 24 hours.

None of the councillors was arrested, and all of them agreed to be questioned.

The move follows the arrest of Labour elected mayor Mark Meredith on March 6 on suspicion of misconduct in public office and complicity in corruption in public office.

He was picked up exactly a week after Conservative councillor Roger Ibbs was arrested on suspicion of corruption in public office.

Both men have since been bailed until June, pending further enquiries.

At the time of print the name of one of those arrested is unknown. The other three are below:
