Police get Iris Robinson council probe files

Draft findings of an inquiry into the awarding of a lease for a council cafe to Iris Robinson's former lover have been passed to police.

Castlereagh council asked consulting firm Deloitte to investigate the matter at the Lock Keeper's Inn.

The inquiry looked at a number of issues including whether the council lost any money.

The findings are being examined by police before they are presented to the council.

The inquiry was prompted after it emerged a contract to run the cafe had been awarded to Mrs Robinson's then-lover Kirk McCambley. The former Castlereagh councillor procured money from two developers to help Mr McCambley open the cafe.

Castlereagh council's acting chief executive Heather Moore confirmed Deloitte had finished the groundwork with the council.
