Northamptonshire Council Council: Grant bill may be £16m A troubled council is facing a bigger bill over its use of ring-fenced public health money than previously thought.
Northamptonshire County Council has been under investigation over claims it spent the cash on other services.
An auditor's report has now revealed the figure was £16m - 60% more than previously reported.
A council spokesman said: "We have been working closely with Public Health England, providing evidence. We await the final outcome of the review." BBC Northampton
