Have your say

Today it was announced that the Mayor of Milton Keynes Subhan Shafiq has stood down over revelations he personally vouched for a convicted sexual offender to be a city taxi driver.

The video above is of a press conference held at Milton Keynes’ Civic offices where the chief executive of the council Carole Mills and Leader of the Council Pete Marland gathered to break the news.



Lib Dem Councillor Stuart Burke and Labour Councillor Gladstone McKenzie were involved in the licensing decision to allow sexual offenders to drive taxis in the city and have also resigned from their posts, but will remain councillors.
