A brief round-up of the latest councillors and activists from the Labour, Tory and Liberal Democrats who have found themselves in the news for various arrests, charges and convictions since our last round-up on Friday. Please bear in mind that most court hearings are on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so please keep checking out Facebook page, where we will keep you updated as we hear of further cases.
A relatively small list for the first half of this week, although the establishment parties will have been working hard to keep details of their wrongdoing out of the press ahead of polling day.
