Councillor Tahir Malik has stepped down from his role as Mayor of Luton after breaking Covid-19 guidelines.

​A new Mayor will be appointed at the Full Council meeting on 29 September, who will serve for the remainder of the municipal year.

Cllr Malik said: "Once again I regret my actions which were below the standard of my position and would like to sincerely apologise to the people of Luton for attending this gathering which was in breach of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. There is no excuse for what I did – I should have known better and I accept full responsibility for my actions."

The council has also received a number of complaints about the three councillors who admitted to attending the function.
