• A police investigation is underway into allegations concerning a Vehicle Inspectorate senior vehicle examiner and disconnected car speedometers.
The Devon and Cornwall police force is focusing on allegations that several cars owned by Ralph Wogan had their speedos disconnected before being sold.
Police officers have also requested a statement of complaint from the VI with regard to car MoT certificates obtained by Wogan.
Wogan was the senior vehicle examiner responsible for policing car MoT standards in garages throughout Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset. He was also in charge of supervising truck maintenance standards in the counties.
The police inquiry follows an internal investigation at the VI which led to Wogan being suspended last Easter from his Exeter-based job. He was subsequently put to work at the executive agency's Bristol headquarters.
