Two Lib Dems arrested over fraud
A Liberal Democrat Birmingham city councillor and a candidate for election to the council have been arrested on suspicion of electoral fraud.

Zaker Choudhry, who represents the Bordesley Green ward, and Mohammed Saeed, nominated in the same ward, have both been suspended from the party.

West Midlands Police said two men, aged 42 and 52, were arrested on Tuesday at two addresses in Small Heath.

They have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.
