Surrey Conservative councillor appealing prison sentence for assault

A Conservative councillor in Surrey convicted of 5 counts of assaulting his ex-girlfriend is appealing against his 22 week prison sentence.

Cllr Asif Ayub was sentenced to 22 weeks in prison for the assault by Ealing Magistrates' Court but isn't happy with the conviction or the sentence. His appeal will be heard shortly at Isleworth Crown Court.
