Millions of pounds of public cash meant to fund road-safety schemes is unaccounted for at a private company run by ex-police officers, it is alleged.
Huge sums went into the coffers of the firm from motorists caught speeding but who avoided prosecution by paying to go on driver awareness courses.
The company – NDORS Ltd, set up by ex-Chief Constable Meredydd Hughes – was paid a proportion of the fees collected to cover the cost of administering the scheme and was meant to return any surplus cash to police forces to spend on improving road safety.
