An independent investigation into allegations of bullying and flouting planning regulations against a Redbridge Councillor cost more than £6,000, it has been revealed.

Redbridge Council’s transparency and openness has been called into question after it was revealed that a full report clearing a Labour councillor of misconduct will never be published.
