UPDATED: Police arrest man in connection with fraud against Bookable

Police have arrested a 39-year-old man from Manchester in connection with an alleged fraud against online travel agent Bookable Holidays.

The man was arrested on Friday after attending Newbury police station for interview. He was not charged and has been released on bail to appear on October 28.

Thames Valley police confirmed the arrest as part of a fraud investigation involving Bookable.

Asked to comment on the arrest, Bookable Holidays managing director Jason Dwyer stated that the individual in question had been employed by the company for only a very short period of time, that there was no suggestion that clients had been defrauded, and that there was no suggestion or implication that Bookable Holidays was implicated in any wrongdoing.

Dwyer said the company would continue to co-operate fully with the police, and re-iterated that so far as it was aware no charges had been brought against the person arrested.
