A former mayor of Kirklees has been found not guilty of breaking local government rules.

Coun Jean Calvert (Lab, Ashbrow) was accused of two offences – that she twice voted in council meetings on matter relating to council tax while she was in arrears with her own council tax by at least two months.

But at Bradford Magistrates’ Court today (Monday) District Judge Sue Bouch ruled that Coun Calvert was not aware of the rules.
