The Tory Cllr was dumped by the Conservative group in December 2011 after pleading guilty to falsely obtaining £2,977 in housing benefit.

A spokesperson for the Conservatve group said - "Clr Tony Brice has been re-admitted into the Conservative Group.

"Clr Brice served his sentence and has publicly apologised for the mistakes he made."
