And at the meeting at 10am on Thursday (October 19), Labour councillors will demand internal running of the council is now taken out of their hands.
“Our administration is focused on getting on with the job of implementing our ambitious plan for the county and improving key council services #8211; something we were democratically re-elected to do only a few months ago.
“Labour are asking for the government to intervene as we can’t trust the current council leadership to put things right. They are unable or unwilling to change.

AN EXTRAORDINARY emergency meeting has been triggered at Worcestershire County Council, with Labour calling for government intervention to turn around a council in “total turmoil”.
