The borough council would not reveal which parish councillors were being investigated at this stage or what the nature of the complaints was.

A member of the public had recently contacted the Burnley Express to say that several councillors had resigned from the parish council over a short period of time, due to issues with councillors that refuse to work with others.

The resident went on to allege that councillors had been “trying to edit minutes and control what the parish is allowed to hear and see.”
