SNP councillor suspended over police investigation into "irregularities"

An SNP councillor in Glasgow has been suspended over allegations of irregularities in his personal details.

Cllr Shabbar Jaffri has been reported to the police over the irregularities, details of which have yet to be revealed. All that has been made public is that suspected council tax irregularities led to a wider investigation which concerned the council's audit team enough to warrant handing over a dossier to the police.
