A Brighton and Hove city councillor facing suspension for putting webcasts of council meetings on YouTube has appealed.

Jason Kitcat, who is a Green Brighton and Hove city councillor for Regency ward, was ticked off by the local authority's standards committee assessment panel last month.

He was found to have breeched the Members' code of conduct after uploading five clips of meetings to the website.

Coun Kitcat was told he would be suspended from his duties until he had written an apology to Conservative councillor Geoffrey Theobald, who featured in the video footage.

Coun Kitcat has refused to apologise and has now appealed the decision.

A separate incident panel will now make the final ruling on the case.
