West Ham have called in Police to investigate claims that personal information was illegally obtained by agents acting on behalf of Tottenham Hotspur FC.

It was revealed last night that Tottenham recently hired a corporate intelligence agency to obtain private information - including bank statements, utility bills and other personal information - belonging to employees of West Ham United FC and the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC).

West Ham responded immediately by stating that the revelations were being ' treating with the utmost seriousness', adding that 'we will take the strongest action possible as well as involve the police and the data protection registrar'.

And less that 12 hours after the story first broke, that is exactly what the club has done with Police called in to investigate the Sunday Times' claims, according to Paul Smith of the Mirror who spoke to David Sullivan earlier today.

Meanwhile Tottenham, who instigated the entire murky process have thus far failed to comment.
