Lib Dem ex-councillor sacked as magistrate

A Lib Dem former councillor in Derby has been sacked as a magistrate for bringing the magistracy into disrepute.

Ajit Atwal was a Lib Dem Councillor on Derby City Council until he lost his seat in May. He hit the headlines earlier in the year after the Sun newspaper discovered his Twitter profile with a picture of Atwal posing with an assault rifle in India. He has been sacked as a magistrate over the incident.
