The incident happened at Derry’s Cross at around 1.30am where a man was approached in the street while walking alone. A male offender punched the victim in the face

The victim was left with a broken jaw which required an operation to insert metal plates.

The offender is described as white, approximately 6ft tall, between 20-22 years-old and is of a muscly and stocky build with a goatee beard.

He was wearing a grey coloured tee-shirt and blue denim jeans.

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.
