A Ramsbottom councillor has been "administratively suspended" from the Labour Party.

Cllr Spencer Donnelly is now listed as an independent on Bury Council's website - but the cause of his suspension remains a mystery.

A Labour Party spokesperson said: “The party does not comment on internal party matters and any disciplinary matters in the party are investigated in line with our rules and procedures.”
