I'm surprised that this one has slipped through the Arrse filter til now, (yes I did do a search, so if its a duplicate Mods please shift to the hole) BBC News - Richard Rhodes PCC expenses 'leak': Police make third arrest Richard Rhodes PCC expenses 'leak': Police make third arrest Detectives investigating the alleged leak of expenses claims made by Cumbria's police and crime commissioner (PCC) have made a third arrest. A 54-year-old man from Penrith is being held on suspicion of perverting the course of justice after details of two chauffeur-driven journeys by Richard Rhodes appeared in a newspaper. Two Cumbria Police staff members were arrested and bailed on Tuesday. So it appears Young Mr Grace has spent £700 on these trips that were part of a contract but he didn't know how much the journeys would cost and he's paid it back so its all ok. Meanwhile: Questions still to be answered over police chief A CHIEF constables spending at a hotel in a picturesque Cumbrian valley and at a West Yorkshire pub are among a series of expenses claims for which police could provide no explanation. The Highland Drove Inn, nestled in the Eden Valley, received a number of bookings from Stuart Hyde including one priced at £112.95 marked no information available in credit card records forwarded to the Yorkshire Post by Cumbria Police. Another booking for £105.05 was described as being for a visit by an unidentified consultant. Bookings for other visitors at the same hotel identify names but Cumbria Police has declined to respond to questions about Mr Hydes credit card spending on the grounds that it might prejudice an investigation by South Wales Police into the chief constables conduct. It is unknown what official business the paid-for accommodation involved. And this is being overseen by........Ah yes: On 15 November 2012, for the first time ever, the public will elect a PCC who will be accountable for how crime is tackled in their police force area. To provide stronger and more transparent accountability of the police, PCCs will be elected by the public to hold Chief Constables and their forces to account, effectively making the police answerable to the communities they serve.
