Brian Coleman will not lose his position as a ward councillor after being charged with assault, Barnet Borough Council has confirmed.
In a statement the council said: “The council is aware that Councillor Brian Coleman has been charged with criminal offences and is due to appear before Hendon Magistrates court on 5 November 2012.
“The matter is therefore subject to judicial process and it would not be appropriate for the council to make any further comment that could be prejudicial to that process.
“Councillor Coleman continues as a ward councillor, his committee membership and chairmanship is a matter for full Council.”
