COUNCILLOR QUITS: Tara Saville has stood down from Sherburn Parish Council, in County Durham, after moving from Gilesgate to Seaham, which is beyond the three-mile limit to be eligible for election as a parish councillor. A complaint was raised by Sherburn resident Adam Foster. Ms Saville's seat is likely to remain vacant until local elections in May.
