A former Labour parliamentary candidate has had his suspension from the Peterborough group overturned on appeal.

Labour and Cooperative Councillor Ed Murphy, who represents Ravensthorpe on Peterborough City Council, was indefinitely suspended by the party.

A spokeswoman confirmed that his appeal was upheld but added: “I am unable to discuss internal disciplinary matters further.”

No reason was given for Mr Murphy’s original suspension.
