Police look into claims of irregularities at Peterborough byelection


Police are investigating five allegations of electoral irregularities related to the Peterborough byelection, which Labour won by 683 votes. Three of these relate to postal votes, one allegation is of bribery and corruption and the fifth is of a breach of the privacy of the vote, Cambridgeshire police have confirmed. The Labour candidate, Lisa Forbes, was elected after the byelection on 6 June, with Nigel Farage’s Brexit party in second place. He told MailOnline: “I think there is something inherently wrong with the entire postal voting process in this country. We’ve seen so many cases now where again and again we find – particularly in the inner cities – postal voting is producing the wrong results.
