TWO members of staff from Trafford Council’s licensing team have been suspended.

This is to allow to an investigation to be conducted in accordance with the council's procedures.

A spokesman said: “Because this is an ongoing investigation, it would be inappropriate for us to provide any further details at this stage.”

The matter has also been handed to Greater Manchester Police.

A spokesman said: “Greater Manchester Police has been contacted by Trafford Council about an ongoing investigation they are carrying out.

“As these discussions are ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
