Chris Peacock as mayor

A Labour councillor has quit Westhoughton Town Council after landing a new job in London which left him unable to attend meetings.

Chris Peacock, the former Mayor of Westhoughton, sent a resignation letter to colleagues on Friday, which was revealed at Monday’s town council meeting.

A by-election is likely to be held in the White Horse ward of Westhoughton.

Mr Peacock was mayor of Westhoughton from 2013 to 2014.
