A member of the public reported several councillors and officers to the police in July after becoming concerned that some of their actions may be criminal.

But the county force says it is not currently investigating.

The person who reported the council, who wishes to remain anonymous, said that they were unhappy that the police were unwilling to investigate and would be asking them to take another look at the case.
