Gwynedd Council says it has put in place a contingency plan in the event the fraud investigation impacts on public transport services.

Five people, all involved in running Penygroes-based Express Motors have been released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of fraud. Four men and a woman were arrested early on Thursday morning as the result of a complaint from Council.

CBW understands items were seized by police, including mobile phones and computers – although its network of local bus services are running normally.

Detective Inspector Steve Williams of North Wales Police said the five were arrested in connection with a fraud investigation. He told the Daily Post: “The five, aged between 40 and early 70s, were questioned in connection with the matter. They have been released on police bail pending further inquiries.”
