The Labour leader on Bedford BC says he has no intention of resigning after his group lost a crucial vote on a controversial planning matter, reports BBC Three Counties Radio.

Mike Cotter, who says he is taking legal action against a fellow Labour councillor for allegedly slandering him, says his conscience is clear.

Mr Cotter was behind a move which opponents claim could have brought the council into disrepute and which could be investigated by the local government ombudsman.

After meeting developers his group called in a planning item to a full council meeting eben though it had been twice turned down by committee. Mr Cotter says he would do it again if he had to.

'What I did and other members of my group have done was attempt to defend and assist a local company. Nobody has done anything wrong', he told the radio.
