DRUMMOND MAKES STRIP SHOW APOLOGY

The mayor of Hartlepool expects to be investigated by the Standards Board for England after complaints by councillors that he did not tell the truth when initially confronted over a visit to a strip show.

Stuart Drummond, who was elected mayor after standing as H'Angus the Monkey, was seen drinking in a pub watching a strip show, which some of his council colleagues thought unbecoming for a mayor.

He has since apologised for his behaviour and admitted his visits to the shows featuring teenage strippers, on two successive Sundays, were an 'error of judgment'.

Mr Drummond said: 'It's in the constitution that councillors must report any alleged breaches. They are just doing their duty and I accept that.'
