The leader of Bolton Council, Cliff Morris, is stepping down after over a decade in charge.
The Labour councillor came under fire earlier this year after he gave £300,000 of public money to Asons Solicitors, a private company in the town. At a scrutiny meeting, Morris told councillors he believed he had done nothing wrong.
On Wednesday, the 75-year-old said he will retire at the end of the year. His deputy, Councillor Linda Thomas, will take over the running of the council in January 2018.
