Cllr Brian Gate Resigns after Child Porn Arrest

We understand this morning that Harrow Councillor Brian Gate (Labour, West Harrow) has resigned following his recent arrest in late September by officers from the Metropolitan Police “…on suspicion of the possession of indecent images of children.”

Police enquiries are ongoing, and he has been bailed to return in early November.

Cllr Gate (@briangate1954 on twitter, if you’re interested) is the Portfolio Holder for Children, Schools and Families, and will be replaced on an interim basis by Cllr Mitzi Green – the previous holder of the role – whilst investigations continue.

It’s clearly not a good time for Labour in Harrow, with another of their members, David Gawn, having been in court recently for a charge of attempted theft.
