Senior Boston councillor under investigation for 'driving a vehicle' while attending an online cabinet meeting
And his video feed, which was visible for much of the Zoom meeting, shows that he appears to be at the wheel of a vehicle during the meeting.
The issue has been raised on Facebook last night by independent councillor Anne Monica Dorrian, who said in a post on the social media platform that Coun Brown “appears to be taking part in the meeting and driving a HGV at the same time”.
Boston Borough Council said today: “This is being investigated through the correct channels and dealt with accordingly.”
The Standard has contacted Coun Brown for a comment.
In a Facebook response to Coun Dorrian from his account, he said that he was in a layby when he was giving his report relating to his portfolio.
The post goes on: “The phone was placed for me to listen to. When you saw me looking at it your seeing me look in the left hand mirror.”
