Ludlow Town Council back to its best

Ludlow Town Council has been quiet of late. No fist-fights or dogs at its meetings.

But the Shropshire Star suggests that it is returning to its old ways:
Mayor-making in Ludlow was disrupted as one councillor branded another a liar and threatened court action before leaving without seeing the ceremony.

Councillor Nick Galtress ... made the accusations towards deputy mayor-elect Derek Davies at yesterday’s robing ceremony in the town’s Assembly Rooms.

After Jim Newbold was chosen as mayor, and before Councillor Davies could be approved as his deputy, Councillor Galtress asked to address the meeting and made his claim.

In a statement to the Shropshire Star, he said he had reported Councillor Davies to the council’s monitoring officer and was taking legal advice over the alleged “lies”. Councillor Davies said following the meeting: “We’ll see how it goes.”
