TWO people have been arrested in connection with an ongoing fraud investigation involving the Washington Mortgage Centre.

The arrests follow allegations of a large scale fraud which has so far seen more than 40 people come forward to voice concerns over investments made through the company.

A 49-year-old man was today arrested on suspicion of fraud and a 41-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of money laundering.

Washington Mortgage Centre was based in the Galleries shopping centre.
