A POLICE investigation into alleged ‘bribery’ on the part of county councillor Tony Hooke has been dropped by the police. Councillor Hooke said: “I’ve just heard from police that following a review by the two investigating officers and their inspector there is no case to answer and no criminal intent.” Police questioned Cllr Hooke last week after a complaint was made concerning his election pledge to donate his £12,000 a year councillor’s allowance to a local charity.
