Arson UKIP Councillor Who Burned Womans Clothes On Tag After Breach of Bail.

A UKIP councillor who sensationally admitted arson, after burning a woman's clothes at his home in February, has had to be tagged and put on curfew by local authorities after he breached his bail conditions, TBG can reveal.

Rushmoor Borough Councillor, Malclom Small, appeared at Basingstoke Magistrates' Court after contacting the victim whose clothes he torched, a breach of his bail orders and is now on an electronically-monitored curfew according to reports.

Small had to hand over his mobile phone and was told not to get a replacement. A curfew condition states he will have to sleep at his home every night until sentencing. Cllr Small will be sentenced at Basingstoke Magistrates' Court on Friday March 14 after admitting burning Kim Van Opdorp's clothes.

Leader of the local UKIP group, and fellow West Heath councillor, Cllr Mark Staplehurst told local reporters that, "the case had been 'blown out of proportion' and that no decision on his future was likely until after the sentencing".
