A Labour City Council Leader has sensationally quit his post in what has been described as a "dramatic day" in Southampton.

As reported this week on tbg Southampton Labour Council Leader Richard Williams was facing calls from Tories to stand down after he apologised for misleading the public, such reasons were explained by former Southampton City Tory councillor Paul Holmes on tbg this week.

"Stunned silence" took over the Chamber as Williams read his statement and promptly left the building.
