Police are to investigate allegations of financial irregularity at Lancashire County Council.

The authority has referred the conduct of a senior officer who was the focus of a recent disciplinary investigation to police after taking legal advice.

It is currently probing the tendering process of a £5M fleet contract and the authorisation of a £500,000 payment to a senior officer.

Suspended Southport resident, chief executive Phil Halsall left the authority on 24 October.
