In a ruling published on EDDC’s website, it states that Cllr Paul Hayward had been disrespectful.

A complaint by Cllr Hayward against Cllr Twiss was dismissed due to lack of evidence.

In last year’s Devon County Council elections, independent, Cllr Hayward came in second with over 1000 votes when he stood against EDDC deputy leader, Cllr Andrew Moulding for the Axminster seat.
