Police called to Wisbech Castle amid claims of harassment and bullying of volunteers
Accusations of bullying and harassment led to police being called to Wisbech Castle on Monday after two town councillors turned up demanding access.
Chairman of Wisbech Castle Working Party Councillor Steve Tierney said he was so worried about the situation, which arose as part of an ongoing row over whether or not a councillor is enjoying the Castle as a "grace and favour" place to live, that he decided to send volunteers working on the site home.
In a statement read out at Monday evening's Castle working party meeting, Coun Tierney launched a blistering attack on critics, accusing them of "an outright onslaught" on Coun Dave Topgood, who he said is one of the most dedicated volunteers carrying out hundreds of hours of voluntary work at the Grade II listed building.
