Allegations made by BBC Radio Five Live centred on Mears' repair service for a Hackney and Islington housing association

Social housing repair and maintenance group Mears has been found innocent of charges that it falsified performance figures related to its repairs service for the Family Mosaic housing association in Hackney and Islington in London.

The investigation, which was launched following a report on BBC Radio Five Live, was based on an analysis of over 30,000 repair jobs.

The findings were accepted by the social housing regulator, The Housing Corporation.

Bob Holt, chief executive of Mears, said: "We are very pleased with the outcome. We took the allegations very seriously and welcomed the independent investigation which is now concluded."
