Police are investigating the distribution of “malicious” leaflets targeting recently returned MP Andrew Rosindell.
The material was spread in the run-up to the general election by an anonymous group referring to itself as “Justice for Romford”.
A spokesman for the police said: “Police in Havering have received an allegation of harassment and malicious communications after leaflets were allegedly distributed in Romford town centre on Saturday, May 2.
“No arrests have been made. Enquiries are ongoing.”
Speaking to the Recorder this week Mr Rosindell, who was re-elected with a majority of 13,859, said: “It’s malicious nonsense and not a single person took it seriously.
