Latest on police probe into West Ham’s stadium claims
Police have bailed a man arrested yesterday in connection with claims by West Ham United Football Club and the Olympic Park Legacy Company that information was unlawfully obtained.
The 29-year-old was taken into custody from an address in Sussex and held on suspicion of fraud.
Scotland Yard today confirmed he has been released on bail until a date in mid-February next year.
A probe was launched in August by Scotland Yard’s Economic Specialist Crime Command.
His arrest is believed to centre on claims made earlier by Baroness Ford at the London Assembly that Tottenham Hotspur, who were involved in a fight for the Olympic Stadium, had the 14-strong board of the legacy company monitored by private investigators.
