Town council Tories resign en masse

Published 2nd February 2018

All Conservative members of Desborough Town Council in Northamptonshire have resigned amid allegations of "bullying, abuse and harassment" of former chair, Jane Pearce and her family.

The reported abuse began after a 400% increase in council tax in 2016. Ms Pearce stood down two weeks ago and now all 10 Tory councillors have resigned from the 12 person council. Kettering BC, which administers the town council's elections, said it is assessing the electoral implications and options.
