A FORMER councillor has been censured for inappropriate behaviour, including downloading pornographic material onto a council laptop.

Bob Nash, who resigned in March citing personal and health reasons, had also faced allegations of making inappropriate remarks after complaints were made by members of staff.

Harrogate Borough Council’s standards committee, chaired by independent representative Rachel Crutchley, considered an investigation carried out by an officer of Hambleton District Council which found Mr Nash had breached the members’ code of conduct. But because he was no longer a councillor, the panel said the only available action was to censure him by placing a public notice in the local media.

The full ruling will be published as a public notice on July 15.
