Councillor quits

A MORPETH councillor has stepped down from his post due to work commitments.

Morpeth Town Council member Jonathan Ferstenberg has resigned his seat in the Kirkhill ward after taking up a new appointment at a school in Teesside.

Notices have been posted on council boards about the vacancy and the authority is waiting to see if at least ten members of the electorate request an election before taking steps to fill the post.
