The Chief Whip informed the Labour group he had applied the sanction against Cllr Morris along with a requirement to undertake a course of diversity training and to offer a personal apology to members of the SACRE – Standing Committee on Religious Education in Plymouth.

Councillor Morris immediately apologised to the Council following his offensive gesture.

No matter what the context it is never appropriate to use this gesture and that is why the Labour Group has acted swiftly in imposing this suspension and sanctions.

Leyton Orient star suspended following Argyle ballboy push

The FA have released the following statement:

"Leyton Orient’s Liam Kelly has been suspended for six matches with immediate effect following the game at Plymouth Argyle on February 14 2017.

It was alleged he committed an act of violent conduct in the 86th minute which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video, contrary to FA Rule E3.

Furthermore, The FA claimed that the standard punishment for the offence would be clearly insufficient.

The player denied both the charge and the claim, however, following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Friday evening [February 17 2017], the case in respect of the charge of violent conduct was found proven.

Furthermore, the Regulatory Commission considered the standard penalty to be insufficient and ordered he serve an additional three match suspension, resulting in six matches in total."
