Yorkshire Mayor suffers double vote blow

A CONTROVERSIAL Yorkshire Mayor suffered a double blow yesterday, when his proposals for a three per cent council tax cut were opposed and a vote of no confidence against him was carried.

Doncaster's elected Mayor Peter Davies and his Cabinet were severely criticised for lack of political leadership during a meeting of the full council in Doncaster, and his budget for 2010-11 was slammed as "irresponsible".

Inspectors from the Audit Commission moved into Doncaster Council's offices yesterday morning as part of a snap inspection into services.
