Terry Manning: Abuse of his position

Torbay Vice-Chairman Terry Manning (Tory) 

Torbay Council vice-chairman Terry Manning has been suspended for abusing his position as councillor.

A council standards hearing heard how he threatened to make trouble for a car recovery firm in a row over the release of his daughter-in-law's car.

A hearing sub-committee of the standards board of the council unanimously agreed Cllr Manning, a Tory Brixham councillor, had twice breached the code of conduct of councillors.

It found Cllr Manning had tried to use his position to secure the release of a car belonging to his daughter-in-law after it had been impounded by police and also made threats to make trouble for the business.
