Council Meeting Sit-In on South Tyneside
I don't normally cover local council stories, but THIS meeting of South Tyneside looks to have been a bit fiery. Labour councillors tried to get the public gallery cleared but they staged a sit in. The Police were then called and the Council Chief Executive branded the onlookers "lunatics". This isn't Australia, you know!
