Lib Dem Fraud

A Lib Dem COUNCILLOR is the subject of a standards investigation after she took a major role in granting cash which paid for her daughter to go on a trip to a theme park.

Coun Donna Caley, who represents the Bradley ward in Nelson, asked the Nelson Committee for £500 to fund a trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach for a group of teenagers, including her daughter, according to a council report following an investigation.

This is the second time that Coun Caley has been called to face the standards committee in just four months. In July, she was accused of failing to tell a meeting that she had an interest in two planning applications near her home, then pressing for enforcement action to be taken.
