The District auditor investigating alleged unlawful expenditure of over £20m in Lambeth LBC has dropped the charges. The auditor ruled that officers received legal advice before expenditure on the civil engineering contracts.

George Willis. Lambeth's former director of civil engineering and public services said: 'It is already a matter of public record that there was no theft, no fraud, no corruption. This latest decision bears out my assertion that my former directorate did nothing the Corporate Council did not want it to do.'

Martin Mancey former Assistant Director for Public Contracts added: 'This has been a case of a DLO and its management being hounded for relying on, and acting strictly in accordance with the judgement of the council's paid legal advisers. It is these legal officers who should now be called to account.'
