Top stories in the latest issue:

LIVERPOOL
Questions for mayor Joe Anderson after the hasty, unpublicised sale of the council’s Millennium House HQ to a ‘colourful’ local businessman.

ROTHERHAM

KENSINGTON & CHELSEA
Did the head of children’s services mislead councillors when defending the appointment of controversial special needs transport contractor, OSL?

HARTLEPOOL

GUILDFORD
Tory councillor who featured in the Eye for ‘pretending to be a barrister’ is charged with fraud and other matters. Does she know a good (real) lawyer?

SLOUGH
The Labour councillor who takes a dim view of benefits fraudsters… even though he doesn’t have an entirely blemish-free past himself.
