The officer's alleged failing? It seems the officer did not do the councillor's bidding when the councillor claimed that a consultant to New Mills town council was defrauding the town council out of some VAT money.
It should be noted here that the councillor is engaged in a known vendetta against the consultant.
In fact, this VAT issue has already been dealt with on High Peak Transparency. Please see What Is The Substance (If Any) In This Claim for the proof that such a fraud against New Mills town council is impossible to have taken place.
We are all for the police being accountable. But causing difficulties for a busy officer, when it is clear that the alleged 'crime' has not been committed, is out of order.
There is also the issue of a local councillor wasting police time.
