A petition calling for three councillors to resign over the rapist taxi driver scandal has been handed to the council.

Tonight, Milton Keynes Young Green demanded the resignation of councillors Subhan Shafiq, Gladstone McKenzie and Stuart Burke.

Ex-Mayor Councillor Shafiq resigned from his post after it was revealed he had given a reference for Nadeem Ahmed Kiani when he applied for a private hire driver’s licence.

The chair and vice-chair of the licensing committee, Mr Burke and Mr McKenzie, also stepped down, but none resigned from their positions as councillors.
