It's a tough question but it has to be asked. Councillors are in frequent contact with children in the course of their work. The vast majority pose absolutely no threat to young people. However, resignations in the circumstances previously discussed raise some very serious concerns.
To alleviate the concerns of residents perhaps all councillors should be checked out for working with children. In this way we can be pretty certain that there are no other councillors likely to be a danger to young people.
