This time Leeds Council acting illegally.
Again it's a good job Neil Herron has reported it to the Police rather than relying on the Local Government Ombudsman. They would have just excused it as a simple administrative error!
If councils aren't bothered about breaking the law then they aren't going to be too worried about the Local Government Ombudsmen! It's no wonder Local Government Ombudsmen are frightened of councils and behave like pet poodles.
