Banbury Town Mayor Sean Woodcock should step down if he plans to stand as a parliamentary candidate the town council’s leader has said.

Mr Woodcock, who was elected as town mayor in May, is set to take part in the Labour Party selection process to become a parliamentary candidate tomorrow (Friday) alongside a second candidate Paul Fisher.

But his decision has been criticised by some Tory councillors who believe the mayor should stay out of political office as the role is a non-political one.
