Police to investigate the politics behind Everton ground move


The Daily Post have reported that the Police will investigate claims that a Destination Kirkby Promotional DVD was created to influence the outcome in Kirkby's local elections.

Knowsley Labour Councillor Mal Sharp told listeners of Radio Merseyside that the vote was "a referendum" for the Destination Kirkby project on the night of the elections.

Everton spokesman Ian Ross told the Daily Post "These people who are accusing us here are the very same people who accuse us of not outlining our plans clearly enough. Yet, when we go to the expense of producing a high-quality DVD at £22,000 they complain again."

The contents of the 'high quality DVD' have been uploaded to Youtube.com by a Kirkby resident. It can be found here.
