Councillor quizzed by police

Redditch Editorial 2nd Jun, 2014 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016   0

A FORMER UKIP councillor has been interviewed by police over racist and homophobic comments.

Redditch Borough councillor David Small was voluntarily interviewed on Friday (May 30) after a member of the public raised concerns over comments he made on Facebook and during a radio interview.

The 81-year-old was expelled by the party following the Standard’s probe into his social media activity.

He was not arrested and a property in the borough was searched by police to gather evidence.




Supt Kevin Purcell, North Worcestershire Police commander, said: “Once all investigations are complete a file will be submitted to the CPS for their consideration.”
