Three charged over Tesco accounts fraud
Three Tesco former executives have been charged as part of an ongoing Serious Fraud Office (SFO) investigation into 2014 accounting irregularities at the supermarket giant.
Carl Rogberg, Christopher Bush and John Scouler have been charged with fraud by abuse of position and false accounting, the SFO said.
The three have been asked to appear in court on 22 September.
Tesco said there had been "an extensive programme of change" since 2014.
Mr Bush was managing director of Tesco UK, Mr Rogberg was finance director UK and Mr Scouler was UK food commercial director.
