Rotherham Labour councillor was checking cricket results during no confidence vote in Police and Crime Commissioner

A Sheffield Labour councillor is to be disciplined by his own party after being caught checking the cricket results on his mobile phone instead of paying attention to a meeting about the council's facilitation of the systematic abuse of 1,400 children.

Cllr David Barker was caught on camera keeping tabs on the Lancashire versus Yorkshire cricket match whilst his colleagues were debating a vote of no confidence in the Labour Police and Crime Commissioner, Shaun Wright.

The motion calling on Wright to resign was passed unanimously despite Cllr Barker's disinterest in getting justice for the raped and abused children of Rotherham.
