Police alerted over potential fraud at Leeds school

UK-PolicemenPolice have been alerted over “potential fraudulent activity” at a school in Leeds. A report from Leeds City Council’s internal audit team only gave the following details:

“We are in the early stages of investigating potential fraudulent activity at one of our schools. We have alerted the police to our concerns and will provide the Committee with further information on this when it is appropriate to do so.

“In the meantime, we have reviewed the internal control arrangements in place at the school and provided a series of recommendations, the implementation of which will mitigate against the fraud risks identified.”

The brief details of the potential fraud were included in a summary of internal audit activity carried out at the council during the first three months of this year.

The full report is going to be discussed by councillors at a meeting of the council’s Corporate Governance and Audit Committee on Friday 7th April.
