Manchester City councillors are calling for a local government ombudsman to be sacked after she recommended a man who sent excrement to city housing officials be offered a choice of homes, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Council leader Graham Stringer said the decision was 'the most bizarre on record'.

The Ombudsman ruled that the council was guilty of maladministration leading to injustice because there had been delays in registering him for housing.

The city's policy committee rejected the Ombudsman's conclusions and ruled that the man at the centre of the row should be barred from the housing list for not accepting offers of housing, the paper reports.
