Ludlow town councillors call in the police

I promise myself I will stop writing about Britain most dysfunctional local authority. But as long as it keeps producing stories like this one from the Ludlow & Tenbury Wells Advertiser...

Police are investigating alleged financial irregularities at Ludlow Town Council.

In a statement, West Mercia Police confirmed it had received a complaint and was looking into it.

Town councillors Michael Bradley and Tony Pound have said that they went to police to report their concerns. “We had tried to get the matter investigated internally. We felt that there was no option but to take the matter to the police,” said Councillor Bradley.
