A councillor has made a public apology for publishing a “sexist” photo-cartoon of a council chief executive.
Coun Andy Strangeway posted a photo of East Riding Council chief executive Caroline Lacey, next to deputy leader Jonathan Owen at a cabinet meeting at County Hall, Beverley.
The image, published on his personal website, contained a speech bubble, written by Coun Strangeway but attributed to Coun Owen, which said: “Psst, don’t look now but Strangeway’s taking photos. And by the way do you know you’re flashing your legs?”
