No action will be taken on Lib Dems

Have your say

LEAFLETS that broke the law will not be investigated by the police, it has been confirmed.

The leaflets were distributed by the Lib Dems in the Fareham East ward, promoting the party’s candidates Katrina Trott and Maryam Brady.

A complaint was made to the police as the leaflets did not have imprints on the first or last pages, as required by law under the Representation of the People Act.

A police spokesman said they would not be pursuing the matter as ‘it is not in the public interest to do so at this time.’ They said the candidates had been contacted and given advice on the requirements for publications.
