Four Flintshire council staff suspended in financial probe

Four council staff have been suspended over alleged operational and financial irregularities, it has emerged.

The staff are employed by Flintshire's Streetscene section which looks after refuse collection, street cleaning and grass cutting.

North Wales Police said they had been informed.

Council chief executive Colin Everett said interim arrangements had been made to ensure "continuity of service until the investigation is complete".

Mr Everett added no further information could be provided to avoid "risks of identifying the individuals involved or prejudicing the investigation".
