Councillors quit housing roles in Legionella outbreak-related row

Brentwood Council housing officers allegedly failed to inform key elected members over a serious outbreak of Legionnaires disease.

The incident, which helped lead to the resignations of two senior Tory councillors – was one of the latest in a string of incidents where officers are alleged to have failed to either implement decisions made in the council chamber or have rescinded policies without informing elected members.
