A PARKS chief has been punished for calling a fellow councillor a “t****r”.

Adur district councillor Emma Evans was branded “disrespectful” by a council committee after using the insult against Lancing parish councillor Geoff Patmore in a Facebook row over dog leads.

Cllr Evans will now have to attend training as punishment for the conduct breach.

It was also recommended she apologise to Cllr Patmore, which she had previously declined to do.
