Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson has been released on bail after being arrested by police investigating claims of bribery and witness intimidation.

He was held with four other men as part of an investigation into the awarding of building contracts in the city.

The Labour Party has suspended Mr Anderson pending the outcome of the case.

Merseyside Police said all five people "have been released on condition bail, pending further inquiries."

We have to be very careful what we say on here as this is a very live case.

Generally when someone is in a public position be they an elected official or a member of the judiciary, they not only have to be super squeaky clean, but have to be seen to be super squeaky clean.

Oh dear now this one's unsurprisingly involved

Derek Hatton arrested in Liverpool building contracts bribery probe

Derek Hatton, the former deputy leader of Liverpool City Council, was one of five men arrested alongside the mayor of Liverpool, the BBC has learned.

Joe Anderson was held on Friday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bribery and witness intimidation.

It is understood Mr Hatton was held on suspicion of witness intimidation, as part of a probe into the awarding of building contracts in the city.

All five men have been released on conditional bail.

Mr Hatton, 72, is a former deputy leader of Liverpool City Council and was a key figure in Militant, a far-left group that ran the city council in the early 1980s.

His membership of Militant led to him being expelled from the Labour Party in the late 1980s.

He then turned to property development, broadcasting and public speaking.


well that is surprising :shock:

After the government fiasco of feathering the nests of their nearest and dearest along with their supporter friends in getting millions of £s in covid contracts. When is the police going to investigate?

It is probably the norm in all Councils in the land for that Liverpool practice to be in operation only the police have not investigated them yet.

No doubt he'll be paid off handsomely after a stint on gardening leave.
