UKIP councillors in Rotherham call for all Labour councillors to resign

The opposition UKIP group on Rotherham Borough Council has submitted a motion to today's full council meeting calling on all Labour councillors to resign and call a by-election.

The motion says that Labour can no longer command public support after helping to cover up the abuse of 1,400 children in Rotherham and all their councillors should resign and "all current Labour members should be required to submit themselves for re-election, in order that we implement a new council with a new mandate to govern the town".

UKIP councillors in Rotherham have pledged to seek justice for the abused children let down by Rotherham Borough Council.
