Derek Osbourne resigns as leader of Kingston Council after arrest

From the Kingston Guardian website this evening:
The leader of Kingston Council has been arrested on suspicion of possessing indecent images of children. 
Councillor Derek Osbourne was arrested at his New Malden home on Tuesday morning. 
Councillor Liz Green, acting leader of Kingston Council, said: "Derek Osbourne has resigned from the Liberal Democrat group. 
"We are deeply shocked by these allegations but I am unable to comment further as we must now allow the police the time and space they need to investigate the allegations thoroughly and without prejudice."
