Surrey Police are investigating after a political leaflet for Thursday's local elections in Epsom was reported for possible offences.

The leaflet was delivered to properties in the Woodcote ward in the borough of Epsom and Ewell, which is holding local elections tomorrow (Thursday, May 2).

Responding to a request from the Surrey Comet, police said they had been contacted by the returning officer on Epsom and Ewell Borough Council (EEBC) about the leaflet.

In a statement the police said that EEBC had received numerous complaints about the content of a political leaflet related to Woodcote ward, without offering any further details about its origins or content.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police said: "Surrey Police has received a referral from the returning officer for Epsom and Ewell Borough Council, after they received a number of complaints relating to the content of a political leaflet delivered to properties in the Woodcote ward.

"We are currently making an assessment as to whether any possible offences have been committed and consulting with partner agencies."

Polling stations in Epsom and Ewell open across the borough on polling day from 7am to 10pm.
