Detectives investigating an alleged licensing corruption ring in Westminster have made four more arrests.
Two men aged 36, a 37-year-old man and a 60-year-old woman are being held on suspicion of bribery in connection with Operation Joseph which is looking into claims of inappropriate relationships between police officers and people running local businesses in the borough.
As the Wood & Vale went to press one of the 36-year-old men was still in custody the others have been released on bail pending further enquires.
In June last year, two police officers based in Westminster, two men aged 48, a 49-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman were arrested as part of the investigation.
All were bailed pending further enquires until April and May.
