Former Upwell councillor 'devastated' following five-year ban from public office

A former borough councillor has been banned from holding public office for five years after admitting gaining a false signature on an electoral form.

David Pope, of Small Lode, Upwell, was also fined more than £3,500 for the offence, which took place ahead of the West Norfolk Council elections in May.

Lynn's Magistrates Court heard this morning that Pope, 75, had been a borough councillor for 16 years, representing the Upwell and Delph ward, and a parish councillor for 25 years.
