One councillor has been suspended by the Conservatives and a police investigation is underway.

The council’s Green party leader, Coun James Burn, has called on the council to take meaningful action to reassure residents, visitors and investors that the borough is welcoming of every member of the community. “The Conservatives and the council as a whole urgently need to take meaningful action to reassure residents, visitors and investors that Solihull welcomes every member of our community regardless of their background”.

A protest will take place on Tuesday 10th October from 4.30pm before the council meeting at 5.30pm at which the council will be asked to put on record that Solihull is a borough welcoming all and accepting all.
