Cllr Paul Lakin has confirmed his resignation as Leader of Rotherham Borough Council with immediate effect. He will also stand down as local councillor for Rotherham’s Valley Ward.

The rest of the Council’s Cabinet confirmed earlier today their intention to resign their positions as soon as transitional arrangements are put in place.

This follows the publication today of Louise Casey’s corporate governance inspection report, and a statement in the House of Commons by Secretary of State, Eric Pickles.
