Query:Dear Avon and Somerset Constabulary

I have been following the 2015 General Election Expenses Investigation on which has collected, collated and cross-referenced a large amount of publicly available data regarding what is popularly known as #ToryElectionFraud. Your police authority features on the site because Marcus Fysh MP (Yeovil), Luke Hall MP (Thornbury and Yate) & James Heappey MP (Wells) are part of your 'patch', so to speak. The Avon and Somerset Constabulary page is here -

I assume you are fully aware of the truly nationwide scale of this issue but you may find it useful to remind yourselves by taking advantage of the 'broad view' that the data on the site provides. A number of sources suggest your organisation may have ongoing investigations but, with only a few weeks to go before the deadline expires, I have grown concerned at the ominous silence regarding your endeavours. I would appreciate it if you would help alleviate my, and many others, concerns and provide me with a brief outline of the current state of your researches. Thank you for your time, I look forward to your reply.
Response:Thank you for your email.

This matter is still under investigation.

The case is currently being reviewed by the Crown Prosecution Service, who will make a decision regarding whether there is enough evidence to support a prosecution.
