Council ousts 'BNP leak' councillor

A councillor arrested last year in connection with a leaked BNP membership list has lost her seat, it emerged today.

Sadie Graham-Single is no longer councillor for Brinsley after Broxtowe Borough Council announced it is to hold a by-election for her seat. The council has called the election following Mrs Graham-Single's failure to attend the requisite number of meetings during a six-month period.

In a statement, the council said her right to be a councillor ceased at midnight on May 12th - six months after last attending a meeting of the council's Sustainable Communities committee on November 12, 2008.

Mrs Graham-Single has been informed of the council's decision and the date of the by-election will be announced following a full council meeting on June 17.

Mrs Graham-Single was one of two people arrest last December in connection with the unauthorised publication of a BNP membership list on the internet. She was arrested by Notts Police on behalf of Dyfed Powys Police, but was bailed pending further inquiries.
