Predictable (I)

Detectives are investigating a suspected fraud in next month's local election after 16 postal vote forms were sent to an address in Birmingham.
The Elections Office was alerted after multiple requests for voting forms were received and sent to Sparkhill.

It is not illegal for forms to be sent to a different address but checks are being made to ensure they do not go to people who are not entitled to vote.

West Midlands Police's economic crime unit will examine the applications.

Who knew there was such a thing as an economic crimes unit ?
