Banner-waving protesters were incensed with the council still having elected member Cllr A Coles carrying out his duties, as demonstrated when they disrupted a council meeting with loud protests earlier this evening,
Councillors arrived at Peterborough City Council to attend the Full Council meeting and were met by protesters at the back of the Town Hall. Their banners, abuse and chants of “shame on you” were demanding that Cllr A Coles quit.
At one point as tensions reached boiling point, the mayor Cllr John Fox halted proceedings for five minutes, then tried to reconvene the meeting but to no avail. The protests continued with chants to have Cllr Coles suspended from this meeting. However, no compromise was found and after what seemed like forever, Mayor Cllr John Fox returned to chambers and announced that the full council meeting was cancelled.
