Leeds Labour councillor deselected over conviction for misusing disabled parking badge

A Labour councillor in Leeds has been deselected after being convicted of misusing a disabled parking badge.

Cllr Andrea McKenna illegally used a blue badge in Leeds which has a zero tolerance policy towards such abuses. She pleaded guilty and was fined £120 by magistrates.

Cllr McKenna was asked to resign by her local Labour Party but refused so the regional Labour Party deselected her.
