THERE have been no arrests during the six-month probe into alleged fraud at a charity, police have confirmed.

Police also refused to provide a detailed update on the investigation into O-Regen, which had strong ties with Waltham Forest Council and owned a number of community facilities.

The organisation went into administration in April and had been struggling for some time.

Police launched an inquiry after a complaint by Hackney Council.

The charity provided training and funding for a variety of community organisations and owned the Epicentre and Click Centre in Leytonstone, the Score Centre in Leyton, and two training colleges in Walthamstow.

After the Guardian questioned the Met on the progress of its enquiries, a spokesman said: “Enquires continue into the investigation and no arrests have been made. As the enquiry is still ongoing, the investigating does not wish to disclose further details at this time.”
