An internal audit was conducted following allegations contained in a letter to the council leader in April relating to potential abuse of the council's procurement processes.

Paul Jukes, chief executive of North Lanarkshire Council, said: "I received an extensive report from internal audit last Friday (September 30). Having considered the report, I have taken the decision to suspend three members of staff from Corporate Property and Procurement on full pay to allow for a disciplinary investigation to take place.

"The council will have no further comment to make while this disciplinary investigation is carried out."
