Police are not taking any action against a Watford mayoral candidate after investigating allegations made against him.

Hertfordshire Constabulary said Labour councillor Jagtar Singh Dhindsa had “no criminal case to answer” after reviewing evidence forwarded by Watford Council.

A spokesperson for Hertfordshire Constabulary said: “Specialist officers within the Economic Crime Unit have examined all the evidence in relation to the referral made by Watford Council and advised there is no criminal case to answer.

“The findings have revealed some matters which the council has been advised to deal with directly. The case has now been closed.”

Those that attempt to smear others are usually scared of losing their seat There should be no place for this in Watford Politics! I'd rather see people voted into power on merit & the Lib\Dems have shown they don't deserve to over-see our Town.

I watched panarama tv programme about the mayor in tower hamlet. Was shocked at the way he got so many votes from certain community. Happy for the police to do their job.

It this case the "job" done by the police is to prove that Scudder hadn't a leg to stand on.

Doubtless he will now provide a grovelling apology - I almost forgot, bulies don't apologise, do they?

I find it sad that people can make accusations, and never seem to have to formerly answer to the police about if it was a genuine mistake or mischief
