Leicester Labour councillor in trouble again

The Leicester Labour councillor and former Lord Mayor convicted of firearms offences earlier this year has been found guilty of breaching the councillors' code of conduct by having five parking fines from 2010 cancelled by officers.

Cllr Robert Wann was investigated by the council's standards committee after a whistleblower reported him. The standards committee found him guilty of bringing the council into disrepute by getting the parking fines cancelled and securing a parking exemption for himself that he wasn't entitled to.
