In a statement Oxford City council said: “Having considered all of the evidence and submissions the (Standards) Committee made a finding of fact that it was highly probable that Councillor Armitage did make an inappropriate comment to one of the members of the under 13s sports team.
“The Committee resolved that the remark was inappropriate and disrespectful and therefore amounted to a breach of paragraph 3(1) of the Code (treating others with respect).
“As the Lord Mayor attended the Awards Evening in his official capacity the Committee also concluded that the inappropriate remark had brought both the office of Lord Mayor and the City Council into disrepute."
