Police were called to Maldon District Council meeting after a row erupted between councillors

‘You have no authority’: Council meeting row erupts

Police were called to Maldon District Council meeting after a row erupted between councillors.

Police officers were called to a local council meeting after a member, who brought a megaphone with him, repeatedly interjected the proceedings.

The meeting of Maldon District Council, which took place on Thursday evening, was abandoned after several frustrated members walked out.

After arriving at the scene, police deemed independent councillor Chrisy Morris to be “breaching the peace” – but no arrests were made.

The entire debacle was recorded

Councillor Morris repeatedly interrupted shouting “point of order” during the meeting as the chairman tried to move on.

Those at the meeting of the Essex local authority were, amongst other things, discussing sanctions against Mr Morris after the council’s joint standards committee deemed that he had brought the authority into disrepute following two independent investigations.
