The resignation of Albert Annett, chairman of the Medina BC's planning committee means the Tories have lost control of the council, the Times reports (p7).

The paper says that Mr Annett's when he resigned last week he public accused fellow Conservatives of attempting to influence planning decisions and said half the council's 16 Tories are Masons. Masons on the councils denied allegations that they were involved influencing planning decisions, says the paper. John Ritchie, former mayor is reported as saying the allegations are rubbish and he keeps his masonry separate from his council role.

The council is now hung, says the paper.
