Mid Devon councillor readmitted to Conservative group after assaulting residents

A Conservative councillor given a 6 month conditional discharge for assaulting two council tenants in Bow has been readmitted to the Conservative group on Mid Devon Council.

Cllr John Squire was suspended from the Conservative group after being convicted of assaulting Kevin and Marion Haughey by beating in March. He was immediately readmitted to the Conservative group after the six month period was up.
