"Labour group leader councillor Tim Oliver confirmed the resignation saying: “Councillor Phillips informed me that he faces allegations linked to unsolicited but illicit material received through the internet.”"

Hmmm, child porn is a serious business but I have to admit, Luke ... that case you highlighted has got me thinking.

Hey Luke, if I sent you a couple of unsolicited (albeit sepia) photographs of me, laying naked on my tummy on a sheepskin rug (aged approximately 3 months old) is there any chance you might resign too?
