A former councillor who worked as an educational social worker at another authority is on trial over 15 charges of false accounting, reports the Daily Post (p13).

John Parry, 52, came to regard his travelling expense claims as perks of the job and money for nothing, Mold crown court was told.

Parry was a member of Anglesey BC, and then the new Anglesey CC, from 1987 until the last election.

He also worked as a social worker first for Gwynedd Council and then Conwy County BC.

Prosecuting Rhys Rowlands said Mr Parry claimed travelling expenses from home to meetings in Llangefni when he was already in the town. In two cases he claimed expenses for travelling to meetings as a councillor when his work records stated he was at work.

Mr Parry denies the claims. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
