Six men and three woman - who worked for a welfare-to-work company in Slough - have been charged with fraud.

They were arrested in connection with an on-going investigation, which started in May 2011 into fraudulent activity at the Slough branch of A4e,  after the matter was referred to the Force by the Department of Work and Pensions.

The Crown Prosecution Service tell us the charges relate to 'numerous offences of fraud' that allegedly took place at A4e between 2009 and this year.  

The six women and three men are alleged to have forged documents to claim money from the Department for Work and Pensions that would have been paid when clients were found jobs. 

All nine are due to appear at Slough Magistrates’ Court on 14 October and other aspects of the case continue to be investigated.
