Essex Councillor Charged With Fraud
An Essex County Councillor's been charged with fraud - relating to a sports club and the County Council.
Officers started their investigations a year ago after getting worried about grants worth more than £50,000 to Clacton Sports Club and its football and cricket clubs.
Pierre Oxley's has now been charged with eight offences of fraud by false representation, intending to cause gain to Clacton Sports Club.
Three offences relate to grant applications to the Big Lottery Fund, two relate to Essex County Council, two others were to Essex Environment Trust and one to Sports England.
The 41-year-old of Ladbrooke Road, Clacton, was charged today and bailed to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on August 13.
A spokesperson for Essex County Council said: “Essex County Council is aware that Cllr Oxley has been charged with a number of offences, but until the legal process has run its course, we are not in a position to make any further comment on this issue.”
A man has been jailed for four years and banned from driving for five years after a fatal crash in Weeley Heath.
"Have fun in a safe environment" is Essex Police's message to festival-goers this year as Chelmsford gears up for the V Festival.
Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals could soon become one under plans to merge.
