Four people have been reported in the long-running fraud investigation at the town’s college.

The move comes just two weeks after police made arrests following a year investigating on campus at the former Adam Smith College, now Fife College.

One man and three women are now the subject of reports to the Procurator Fiscal.

The developments are the latest stage in a major investigation sparked by separate probes by the Scottish Government and KPMG into the running of the college which resulted in it paying back some £5.5m in European funding.

They were called in after claims that a bullying culture had been allowed to exist on campus.

News of the latest developments were confirmed by the Crown office.

A spokesman said: ”The Procurator Fiscal has received a report concerning a 50-year-old male and three females aged 44, 49 and 58 in connection with alleged incidents occurring between July 29, 2008, and September 14, 2012.’’

He added that the report ‘‘remains under the consideration of the Procurator Fiscal.”

No further details were released.
