A Bath councillor has been cautioned by police after a physical assault on a woman civil servant.
Cllr Brian Webber, a Conservative member of Bath and North East Somerset Council representing the city centre Abbey Ward, was acting in his role as treasurer to the Sydney Gardens Bowling Club when he pushed the woman against a wall during a discussion over valuation rates.
According to her husband, the 45-year-old mother-of-two could not move her arm for several hours after the incident and suffered sleepless nights as a result of the pain.
