Lords Ban For Former Essex County Leader?
The former Essex County Council leader, Lord Hanningfield, could be banned from the House of Lords for 9 months.
The disgraced Tory peer was released from jail in September after serving just a quarter of his sentence for fiddling his parliamentary expenses.
The House of Lords Privileges and Conduct Committee have recommended that Lord Hanningfield should face a nine month ban - the same amount of time as his original prison sentence.
If approved by peers, the suspension would run from the date he was sentenced earlier this year.
An aircraft hangar has been damaged in a blaze at Southend Airport.
Residents and businesses are being encouraged to tell Essex County Council whether they can access superfast broadband.
