Decision due on porn claim

A FORMER Harrogate councillor accused of making inappropriate remarks and accessing adult pornography on a council laptop goes before the standards committee this week.

Coun Bob Nash, who represented the Rossett ward for 16 years, is being investigated on two counts by Harrogate Borough Council’s monitoring officer, following complaints from staff.

His case will be heard at the council offices on Wednesday.

Mr Nash, who had previously chaired the authority’s licensing committee, stepped down as a councillor in March, citing “personal and health reasons”.
