Inland Revenue fraud investigators question Ford workers over charity tax scam

More than 200 workers on the shop floor at Ford's Dagenham plant have been questioned in a huge investigation into an alleged tax scam, according to reports today.

The London Evening Standard reports that the scam is said to based on tax relief for bogus charitable donations.

A fraud investigation team from the Inland Revenue questioned the workers about the scam which has allegedly been running for some while.

The sum involved could be as much as £2 million.

It came to light after the Inland Revenue began investigations into certain aspects of allegations of racial harassment and bullying by production line employees last year.
