EDMUNDSBURY LEADER HITS OUT AT SOCIAL SERVICES AFTER BUST-UP WITH DAUGHTER

The leader of St Edmundsbury BC, Mike Brundle, who was arrested following an altercation with his daughter, has criticised his social services department for allowing the 15-year-old girl to get her nose pierced while in care.

The Daily Telegraph (p1) reports that Mr Brundle was arrested and held for six hours in police cells after he tried to restrain his 15-year-old daughter in order to stop her going out with 'undesirable friends'. He was later released on police bail.

After being put in the care of social services, Georgina Brundle was offered a fostering place, but chose to return to the family home.

Mr Brundle said: 'I was outraged that this could happen while she was supposed to be in the care of social services. The fact that she chose to return home shows that I am not a brutal father.

The Daily Mail (p7) reports that Georgina said she was very sorry about her behaviour and fully accepted that her father was 'only being protective'. She added: 'He never hurt me. It was all blown out of proportion by the social services.'

Last night all charged against Mr Brundle had been dropped after a request to police from Georgina.
