There will a meeting today to elect a new Lord Mayor for Oxford after the previous mayor resigned. Councillor Alan Armitage resigned following the backlash over comments he allegedly made to a schoolgirl. He said he did not recall using the word "sexy" at a school prize-giving event.
But Oxford City Council said it was "highly probable" that he did. An investigation by a local government standards committee found had brought the council and the office of Lord Mayor into disrepute. He was censured, but the committee did not say he should resign as mayor.
However, Councillor Armitage later resigned, saying he did not have the full support of his councillors. There will be a meeting in the council chamber of Oxford Town Hall to elect a new mayor.
