Local councils slammed for bad investments
Seven councils have been described as negligent, for failing to heed warnings about Icelandic banks, days before they went bust.

An Audit Commission report shows the local authorities breached official guidance and their own protocols in continuing to invest in the run up to October the 7th.

That's when several of the country's banks collapsed.

Surrey County Council had 20 million pounds frozen in foreign accounts, while Sutton Council had invested 5 and a half million.

The Met police and Surrey police also had interests there.

But the Commission makes no mention of them in its report – instead focussing on Kent County Council and others who were warned about Iceland's troubles before they invested.
